A Saudi Arabian club has made a huge offer to land Liverpool’s Roberto Firmino, who is all set to be a free agent in a few months’ time.
According to a report by Football Insider, Roberto Firmino has received a huge offer from a Saudi Arabian club as he is all set to part ways with Liverpool ahead of next season. The Brazilian striker has decided to not renew his contract with the Merseyside club and is all set to leave them in the summer.
Firmino communicated his decision to part ways with the club last Wednesday. The 31-year-old’s contract at the Merseyside club ends in the summer. While Liverpool would have loved to have him at the club for a few more years, he has decided to take the next step in his career.
The Brazilian forward joined the club back in the summer of 2015 from TSG Hoffenheim. During his eight-year-long spell at the club, the 31-year-old has won every possible silverware. He has been an integral part of Klopp’s squad over the years.
Firmino has made over 350 appearances for Liverpool and has been involved in over 180 goals. While he has suffered because of injuries in the ongoing season, the 31-year-old has still managed to score 10 goals and has five assists in 28 outings.
The former Hoffenheim forward has been a great servant for the Merseyside club. While it has been a difficult decision for him, he believes it is the right time to move on. Firmino still has a few more years of football left in him. Meanwhile, the 31-year-old is yet to decide his future amidst interest from clubs across the world.
Barcelona and Inter Milan are among two of the biggest European clubs who are interested in having the Brazilian in their ranks. But, as per the latest reports, a Saudi Arabian club has submitted a huge offer to lure him to the Middle East.
They want the 31-year-old to join Cristiano Ronaldo in the Saudi Arabian top flight and are willing to offer him huge wages. However, Firmino has the ball in his court and can decide whether he wants to continue in Europe or look for a new adventure in the Middle East or at an MLS club in the United States.
