Liverpool forward Roberto Firmino is set to leave the Merseyside club at the end of the 2022/23 season.

According to German journalist Florian Plettenberg, Roberto Firmino has decided to leave Liverpool when his contract expires in the summer. And the 31-year-old Brazilian international will not sign an extension with the Premier League club.

The veteran attacker has spent eight seasons with the Premier League giants, and he has helped them win every single trophy at the club level. Firmino is undoubtedly one of the best attackers in the club’s history, and he will go down as a legend for his contributions under Jurgen Klopp.

The Reds lost Sadio Mane to Bayern Munich at the start of the season. And the departure of Firmino in the summer leaves just Mohamed Salah out of Liverpool’s famous front three.Β The trio wreaked havoc on opposition defences in their heyday. And the Reds will certainly struggle to replace them, as it has been evident in the way Liverpool have performed without Mane.

Despite the fact that Firmino is past his peak, he remains an intelligent footballer and has directly contributed to 13 goals this season. However, the Reds spent a considerable amount of money on Darwin Nunez and Cody Gakpo in the recent windows. The Dutch international is expected to replace Firmino, and he has done reasonably well in that role so far.

Firmino is yet to decide on his new club and he has been linked with a move to Spanish clubs in recent months. It will be interesting to see where the 31-year-old ends up eventually. There is no doubt that the Brazilian is good enough to play for a top club.

Florian Plettenberg has revealed that Firmino has informed Klopp of his decision personally after a training session today. And he is now focused on giving his best for the club until the end of the season. Firmino started the season in imperious form, scoring nine goals and picking up four assists.

However, he has had persistent injury problems since then. The Brazilian is back in action once again, and it remains to be seen whether he can help Liverpool secure Champions League qualification.Β The Reds are currently sixth in the league table and will be desperate to get back into the top four.
