Serie A heavyweights AC Milan and Juventus are reportedly keen on signing Liverpool striker Roberto Firmino.
According to a report from Calciomercatoweb, Juventus are not the only Serie A heavyweights looking to sign Roberto Firmino. And AC Milan could look to make a move for the Liverpool striker at the end of the season as well.
The 31-year-old Liverpool striker will be out of contract at the end of the season, and he could be signed on a free transfer. It is no secret that both Serie A clubs could use more quality and depth in their attack. And Firmino could prove to be a quality addition for them.
The Brazilian international has been an exceptional servant for Liverpool since joining the club from Hoffenheim. But the 31-year-old has regressed over the past year. However, he is having an impressive 2022/23 season with eight goals and four assists to his name across all competitions.
If Juventus or AC Milan manage to sign him on a free transfer, it could prove to be a major bargain for either club.
There have been rumours that Liverpool might not agree on a contract extension with the player and he will call time on his Anfield career at the end of the season. But Firmino is unlikely to have any shortage of suitors, having proven himself at the highest level with the Reds.
The 31-year-old has helped Liverpool win the Premier League and the UEFA Champions League during his time at Anfield. A move to Italy could be ideal for him at this stage of his career. The lower intensity of Serie A could help the Brazilian thrive, and it would also prolong his career.
Firmino is more than just a goalscorer, and he can operate in a number of positions in the final third. His versatility will be an added bonus for any club that manages to secure his services. The Brazilian is an excellent playmaker as well, and he will add some much-needed creativity to Juventus or AC Milan.
