Real Madrid will mull over signing veteran Brazilian forward Robert Firmino from Liverpool in the summer transfer window.
According to a report by Spanish outlet Defensa Central, Roberto Firmino is the subject of interest from Real Madrid. The reigning La Liga champions are considering signing the Liverpool veteran in the summer transfer window. And a possible deal might be a free transfer, with the 31-year-old in the final six months of his Liverpool contract.
Roberto Firmino has been a vital cog in Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool juggernaut. The Brazilian forward arrived at Anfield before the German tactician and reprised different roles under Brendan Rodgers. But Klopp has transformed him, turning him into one of the best exponents of the “False Nine” role.
The 31-year-old has enjoyed a solid 2022/23 season, amassing nine goals and four assists in 21 outings thus far. But fitness issues have plagued the Liverpool veteran in the last few weeks. In addition, Firmino’s contract situation has left Liverpool in a spot of bother, as he has entered the final six months of his deal. Such a scenario has captured the attention of Real Madrid.
The reigning La Liga champions are contemplating signing a striker in the summer transfer window. Real Madrid will see Endrick arriving at the Santiago Bernabeu in 18 months. But with Mariano Diaz likely to leave at the end of the season, a spot will open up in the offensive unit.
Karim Benzema has been sensational for Real Madrid in the last few seasons. But the Real Madrid captain has endured a spate of injuries this season, leaving Carlo Ancelotti without reliable strikers. So the interest in Firmino is hardly surprising, considering the Liverpool veteran is a dependable performer. His contract situation has also alerted several other clubs, including Barcelona.
Meanwhile, Liverpool will try to tie the Brazilian international to a new contract. But Firmino’s potential free-agent status makes him an attractive target for Real Madrid amid interest in sought-after players like Jude Bellingham and Josko Gvardiol. And Los Blancos might launch the offensive in the summer transfer window.
But recent reports have suggested that Firmino wants to remain with Liverpool beyond the summer transfer window. And it will be interesting to see if the interest from Real Madrid turns his head.
