Roberto Firmino is engaged in contract talks with Liverpool as the club want to keep the player beyond this season.
According to the journalist Florian PlettenbergLiverpool are making progress in contract talks with Roberto Firmino and the Brazilian is set to commit his future with the club.
Firmino has presented himself in a new way as the striker has proven his worth again and again this season. The 31-year-old has been Jurgen Klopp’s most consistent striker as he has already been involved in 13 goals in all competitions.
Despite his excellent form, he was surprisingly snubbed from Brazil’s World Cup squad, but the player will now be rewarded with further terms to extend his association.
The Brazilian striker arrived from Hoffenheim in 2015 and has been with the Merseysiders ever since. It has been suggested that the player could leave the club after his current contract expires as the club won’t offer him an extension.

But he defied the odds with his goalscoring antics and now the Premier League giants are ready to step it up as the player will be free to chat with any other club.
Jurgen Klopp has also confirmed that the parties are dealing with Firmino’s contract situation but he’s unlikely to be offered a long-term contract.
The Reds will take their time during the upcoming World Cup break to sort out any outstanding issues and Firmino’s new contract is expected to be finalized before the winter transfer window.
Journalist Florian Plettenberg has also insisted that the club are making steady progress with the Brazilian striker’s entourage. “I have been told that the talks on a new contract beyond 2023 are progressing very well. But no final stage at this stage. The player can really imagine extending. The relationship with Klopp should be perfect.
Jurgen Klopp will put his beak to the World Cup to put his players to the test as the Reds plan a lengthy camp in Dubai. The break could recharge their batteries and players like Roberto Firmino could be ready for a fiercer battle on the pitch.
