Roberto Firmino: Markus Gisdol says talk of an exit is just rumours

A number of high-profile European clubs are reportedly keen on his services, with the likes of Paris St Germain, Juventus and Atletico Madrid among those said to have shown an interest.

The 22-year-old Brazilian has impressed in the Bundesliga so far this season, scoring 11 times in 21 appearances as his side occupy 10th in the table.

Firmino has another year left on his current deal at the Rhein-Neckar-Arena and Gisdol was quick to dismiss suggestions that his star man could be set to leave.

"These are just rumours," he told Sport-BILD weekly.

"Roberto Firmino is under contract at our club and he is a first-team regular with us.

"In addition, everyone should be aware why Roberto is playing such a good game at this point in time."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
