Roberto Firmino expresses his desire to stay at Liverpool

Roberto Firmino intends to prolong his stay at Liverpool.

The Brazilian winger is expected to leave Liverpool as his current contract is due to expire in June.

The Liverpool No.9 has won every possible trophy with the club and has amassed 107 goals and 78 assists in 348 appearances.

The Reds are currently struggling in the Premier League table and are 19 points behind league-leaders Arsenal sitting at ninth.

Firmino has been a key player in Jurgen Klopp’s side in the last seven-and-a-half years.

There has been interest from Saudi Arabia in recent weeks but the 31-year-old striker intends to extend his stay at Anfield.

Even manager Jurgen Klopp has reiterated that Gakpo’s arrival in January has no impact on Firmino’s future at Liverpool.

“It’s incredible playing high-level football here with great players, stars of the game,” Firmino told the official Liverpool magazine. “I’m happy here and I intend to stay here and help Liverpool FC.

“It’s a dream for all players to win the Premier League and Champions League. It’s history, a huge legacy. When it happened, we felt tremendously privileged, grateful to God for having given this to us.”
