Liverpool want to extend Roberto Firmino's contract

Liverpool want to extend Roberto Firmino's contract

He'll be hoping that his goals and creativity can contribute to Liverpool enjoying a strong end to the season.

An Irish Liverpool fanatic has posted a video online of a chant he'd like to hear on the terraces as Jurgen Klopp's side take on Manchester City this Sunday.

Roberto Firmino has been a vital member of the Liverpool squad and he has improved season upon season. This year Pep Guardiola has deployed Kevin De Bruyne and David Silva in deeper roles than we are used to seeing them, which in turn has allowed City to still field three pacy forward players ahead of them.

Despite handing in a transfer request, however, Coutinho continued to perform at a level expected of him and his farewell message to Liverpool fans was, by and large, well-received.

"It is our job to keep the wheels moving and momentum going".

"Liverpool is no longer the same without you my magical brother", Firmino wrote on social media following his friend's departure to the Nou Camp.

Barca finally secured the signing of Coutinho from Liverpool for £145million earlier this week, with the Brazilian becoming the second-most expensive footballer in the world.

"God is always protecting you and the whole family!"

"I wish Phil all the very best but the only thing I'm concentrating on is Liverpool and winning as many games as we can - starting with Man City on Sunday".

When a star player leaves like the Brazilian it is a unusual feeling for football supporters, but in the attacking department, Liverpool have magnificent talent, devastating talent on their day.

"You want to play as much as possible but I am not the type of character to go bursting walls down", he says of the quiet start to life at Anfield.

Reports have claimed Liverpool are prepared to sell the England worldwide, while Inter view Sturridge as an alternative signing to Barcelona winger Gerard Deulofeu.

"Coutinho scores goals, assists, he can play both inside (down the centre) and outside (on the flanks)".
