Liverpool striker Roberto Firmino is reportedly set to leave the Merseyside club at the end of the season.

Roberto Firmino will be a free agent at the end of the season, and he does not plan to renew his contract with the Premier League giants. A report from Calciomercatoweb claims that Inter Milan and Juventus are keen on signing the 31-year-old.

The Brazilian striker has been a top-class player for Liverpool and he has helped them win every trophy at the club level. Despite being 31, Firmino remains an important player for Liverpool and he could prove to be a quality signing on a free transfer.

The Brazilian international has ten goals and 5 assists to his name across all competitions this season despite having lengthy injury layoffs.

Firmino is more than a goalscorer, and his ability to perform at a high level in multiple roles could make him a valuable asset for both Serie A clubs. Inter Milan and Juventus could both use attacking reinforcements, and the Brazilian would be a quality option to have.

Firmino has already proven himself in the Bundesliga and in the Premier League. The opportunity to showcase his qualities in Italy will be an attractive proposition for the player. Furthermore, the lower intensity of Italian football is likely to suit the Brazilian at this age and it could prolong his career.

The style of play in Italy is a lot more technical compared to the Premier League and Firmino will certainly excel in that. The Brazilian is one of the most technically gifted players in the Premier League and he could add a new dimension to the Inter Milan and Juventus attack. He has been linked with Barcelona as well.

Inter are currently well-positioned to secure Champions League qualification and they are likely to be a more attractive option for Firmino. Juventus, on the other hand, are fighting for a place in the Champions League next season.

The Turin giants will have to secure qualification to the premier European competition if they want to attract players like Firmino. It will be interesting to see where the 31-year-old ends up eventually. Whoever signs him on a free transfer will end up with a massive bargain.
