Firmino To Leave Liverpool At End Of Season

Brazil striker, Roberto Firmino, will leave Liverpool at the end of the season, according to Sky Germany sources.

Firmino has decided not to renew his expiring contract and will depart the club in summer after eight successful years.

The 31-year-old personally informed manager Jurgen Klopp about his decision and had positive talks with him on Friday.

In 2015, Firmino completed his move from Hoffenheim in a £21.3m deal. Since then he has scored 107 goals and provided 78 assists in 352 appearances.

He became the highest-scoring Brazilian striker in Premier League history in 2019 and now has 78 goals in the top flight.

Firmino has won seven titles with Liverpool, among them the Champions League in the 2018/19 season and the Premier League title a year later.

This season, Firmino scored nine times and contributed four assists although has struggled with injury.
