Liverpool made a mistake by allowing Sadio Mane to go during the summer transfer window, and the club has suffered greatly as a result of his absence.
The Reds do not want to make the same mistake again with Roberto Firmino, and rumors indicate that they are ready to agree on new terms with the Anfield star.
Liverpool is willing to pay £86 million for his services, according to reports.
According to an exclusive story published by Football Insider yesterday, Liverpool is ready to begin contract negotiations with the Samba star.
According to the report, Jurgen Klopp believes the £180,000-a-week player still has a lot to give the Merseysiders and that the club should extend his contract.
The Brazilian international formed a world-class partnership with Mane and Salah and helped Liverpool win the Champions League and the Premier League.
In the past couple of seasons, he fell behind Jota and Diaz in the pecking order. In the last campaign, he only managed to score 5 goals in the Premier League.
However, the 31-year-old has returned to Anfield in spectacular form. This season, he has directly contributed to 12 goals in 14 starts across all competitions (8 goals and 4 assists).
He has already scored six goals in the league.
Firmino has been Liverpool’s shining light in an otherwise dreary season, and we need him to be at his best if we are to qualify for the Champions League.
