Liverpool expected to table Roberto Firmino new deal after journalist's update - pundit

Paul Robinson is adamant Liverpool will offer Roberto Firmino a contract extension.

However, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the ex-Spurs and England number one is unsure as to whether the 30-year-old would sign new terms.

Firmino has entered the final 12 months of his contract at Anfield.

According to the Liverpool Echo‘s Paul Gorst (6 July), it is unlikely the club will allow the Brazilian forward to leave this summer amid reported interest from Juventus.

In the 2021-22 campaign, Firmino was a bit-part player for the Reds because of injury problems.

When asked by Football Insider for his assessment of the striker’s future, Robinson said: “I’m sure they will offer him a new deal.

“It will be up to the player as to what he wants to do.

“When you look at the forward players at Liverpool now, he is not guaranteed game time. That front three that was viewed as unbreakable is no more. Their attack has a very different look to it.

“It is a squad game more than ever now though. Firmino is a big part of that Liverpool squad so Klopp will want to keep him.

“If the player is happy with the amount of games he is playing, not playing week in, week out he may sign.

“But he could also get his head turned by another club. If his head is turned Liverpool have a decision to make.

“Do they cash in or keep him for one more season and allow him to leave on a free?”
