Liverpool make Firmino stance clear amid Werner links

Date published: Friday 21st February 2020 10:08

Liverpool have reportedly ruled out a move away for Roberto Firmino amid speculation linking the Brazilian with a transfer to Bayern Munich this summer.

The Bundesliga giants are thought to have targeted the Reds hotshot in the belief that the Reds are lining up Timo Werner to replace the Brazilian.

The prolific RB Leipzig hotshot, who grabbed the winner at Tottenham in the Champions League in midweek, is available for £50m and Jurgen Klopp is known to be a big admirer.

However, a report in the Daily Express claims that Werner could still arrive at Anfieldbut as a back-up to Liverpool’s famed front three and not as a replacement for one of them.

The report adds that Liverpool have been left ‘bemused’ by the claims that they would let Firmino move, given the Brazilian’s importance to a Reds side that are closing in on their first top-flight title in 30 years.

The 28-year-old might have only scored 10 goals in 38 appearances this season, but his 12 assists and general all-round play has played a massive part in his side’s success this season.

That news is sure to come as a big blow to Bayern, who may now turn their own attention to trying to sign Werner as they look to continue their domination of German football.
