Roberto Firmino is reportedly considering his stay at Liverpool.
Liverpool striker Roberto Firmino is being courted by clubs in Saudi Arabia, but he remains committed to staying at Anfield.
The Brazilian forward, whose contract expires at the end of the season, has been a popular player among Reds fans since his £29 million move from Hoffenheim in 2015, when he helped the club win the Premier League, Champions League, FA Cup, and League Cup.
Firmino was once a mainstay in Jurgen Klopp’s side, but his game time has dwindled in recent seasons, with only 20 league appearances last season compared to 34, 38, and 36 between 2018-19 and 2020-21.
The additions of Diogo Jota, Luis Diaz, and Darwin Nunez have increased competition for forward positions at Liverpool, and the 31-year-opportunities old’s are likely to diminish further following the £44 million signing of Cody Gakpo from PSV this month.
On Tuesday, Saudi giants Al Nassr unveiled their new superstar Cristiano Ronaldo, who agreed to a deal worth a staggering £175 million per year.
Despite having offers to join the ex-Manchester United and Real Madrid star in the Saudi Pro League, Firmino is leaning toward signing a new contract at Anfield, with his current deal worth around £180,000 per week.
Barcelona, Atletico Madrid, and Juventus, as well as his hometown club Sao Paolo, have all expressed interest in the striker.
Liverpool’s 3-1 defeat by Brentford on Monday dropped them to fourth place, seven points behind Manchester United.
Despite the Reds’ poor start to the season, Firmino has had a productive season so far, scoring nine goals and providing four assists in 21 appearances across all competitions.
