After eight years of service, Roberto Firmino leaves Liverpool as a club legend. Anfield Road will never forget its beloved “Bobby”, who always gave his best for the team and scored 110 goals in 361 appearances, including one in his final home game, a goal that secures European football for Liverpool next season. Firmino won everything that can be won with Liverpool, lifting one Premier League title, one FA Cup, one League Cup, one Community Shield, one Champions League, one UEFA Super Cup, and one FIFA Club World Cup. He is now on the look for the next challenge, and some of Europe’s biggest clubs fight for him.
According to the best betting sites, Spanish Champions FC Barcelona are the favourites to sign Firmino. They have been hunting the Brazilian forward for almost five years and they can now get him for free, as his Liverpool contract expires. Barcelona have a first option at centre forward in Robert Lewandowski, but Firmino can play as a second striker and a Robert-Roberto duo could be fun to watch.
The second favourites, according to the odds, are Italian Champions Napoli. The Partenopei were the frontrunners to sign him all through the season (especially if Victor Osimhen ends up leaving), but are now second down on the list, since Barcelona joined the race.
And then there is Real Madrid and the Milan clubs, AC Milan and Inter. Madrid have a proper Brazilian community in their locker room, AC Milan desperately want a striker, while Inter’s case is unique, as the 2023 Champions League Final side seems to have a plethora of forwards, including some that seem to be overpaid.
