Juventus submit ‘formal offer’ for Liverpool striker Roberto Firmino
Firmino has been a fan favorite since arriving from Merseyside seven years ago in the summer of 2015, although the Brazilian has said he wants to stay at Liverpool which is not enough to deter the Italian giants from make a formal offer to the club.
One of Brendan Rodgers’ latest signings from Merseyside, Firmino arrived in the summer of 2015 alongside Christian Benteke, Nathaniel Clyne, Danny Ings and James Milner among others.
October saw the departure of Rodgers as manager of Liverpool Football Club and in turn, Jurgen Klopp took over the reins. Firmino was then molded into the ‘false nine’ position by Jurgen and his team, and the rest is history.

Firmino has attracted interest from a range of European clubs, especially since the club announced the £67.5m signing of Uruguay international Darwin Nunez.
According to Totto Juve via Sports Witness, Juventus have “presented Liverpool with a formal offer” estimated at around €23m, or around £19.5m. The report goes on to say that Juventus plan to present their proposal in the coming days with the aim of reaching a deal for the Brazilian in the coming days.
Since arriving on Merseyside, Firmino has scored 98 goals and 74 assists in just 327 games in all competitions, becoming a fan favourite. Selling the Brazilian for less than £20m would no doubt be unfavorable to the Liverpool fanbase.
