Bayern Munich are keeping tabs on Roberto Firmino’s situation, as they might seek a replacement for Eric Maxim Chuopo-Moting in January.

Media Foot says Bayern Munich could enter the market for a new striker if Eric Maxim Chuopo-Moting departs in January. Roberto Firmino is one of their primary targets to replace the Cameroonian, with the 31-year-old star’s contract set to expire in six months.

Roberto Firmino is already attracting the interest of big clubs from around the continent. The 31-year-old star could see Bayern Munich’s name added to a growing list of suitors, including Barcelona. The Brazilian’s contract is due in the summer, as his future remains uncertain.

The arrival of Darwin Nunez in the summer threatened his position as Liverpool’s starting striker. Yet, due to injuries to Luis Diaz and Diogo Jota, Firmino has played plenty of games and scored nine goals across all competitions for the Reds.

Those are healthy numbers, and Jurgen Klopp remains keen to keep Firmino on board. Liverpool have offered the Brazilian a new deal, although nothing remains signed between the parties. Firmino supposedly wants to stay put, but if essential offers arrive, the 31-year-old star could evaluate all options.

Barcelona are keen on signing him on a free transfer next summer, but Bayern Munich might come in with an offer in January. The Bavarians only signed Firmino’s former teammate Sadio Mane in the summer and may look to reunite the duo this month.

Bayern could enter the market in January for a striker if Eric Maxim Chuopo-Moting ends up departing the club. The experienced striker remains linked with a move to Manchester United. They are seeking a new frontman to replace Cristiano Ronaldo.

If he does depart, Bayern plans on raiding Liverpool for Firmino. If the right offer comes in, the Brazilian could evaluate all options and even urge Liverpool to let him join the Bavarians. Things, however, look very uncertain now, as the German champions are not desperate enough to sign a new striker. They will only do so if the situation dictates the need.

For now, the chances of Firmino signing a new contract with Liverpool are high. If the 31-year-old star feels the need for a new challenge to fulfill different things in his fledging career, things could take a different turn.
