Firmino contract update and new loan deal confirmed – Latest LFC News

Wednesday brought the fallout from transfer deadline day – a quiet one for Liverpool – along with an update on Roberto Firmino‘s future at Anfield.


An update on Firmino’s contract talks

There could be a resolution to talks over a new contract for Firmino later this month, according to the long-serving striker’s agent.

In an interview with Sky Germany, Roger Wittmann said “we will probably know where the journey is going” later in February.

Wittmann described talks with Liverpool as “really good” and claimed the two parties are “on the right track” when it comes to an extension.

Firmino has scored nine goals and laid on four assists in 21 games so far this season, but has been sidelined since before the World Cup with an ongoing calf injury.

The No. 9 had declared himself fit before the 2-1 win over Leicester on December 30, with a return expected against Brentford days later, but he then suffered a setback.

Despite his excellent form in the first half of the campaign, the frequency of these injury issues does pose the question of whether it is, in fact, time to cut Firmino loose.
