There's a rumour from a shit source that Juve are sniffing around him for £20m.

Clearly, that number is missing a 0 in the end. Love Bobby and hope he has more luck in the new season with injuries and fitness than he did last. It was great seeing him smile and having a good time on the pitch again in one of those friendlies...

I thought he was impressive in the minutes he was able to give us last season.

He's absolute class when on it and still a big asset to LFC.

Bobby has looked very sharp in pre-season, I doubt there is any way Jurgen will let him go paricularly as Jota is nursing an injury. Really looking forward to seeing how the front 5 operate this season, should be something else particularly with Carvalho and Elliott around them. Having 5 subs will be just great for Jurgen.

Any sale now makes no sense for us and a huge risk this season to sell another key attacking option after we have sold Mane, MInamino and allowed Origi to move on.

Yes it would be nice to get Bobby an extension of sorts -  do we think he could extend for a shorter period?

 I hope he does not move at this stage.

I was hoping even to see him as AM role behind Nunez and see how that works as an option going forward.

Concern would be if he asks for a move to get a regular game to protect his World Cup place, as we wouldn't want let him go by choice.

Nunez will need bedding in though, Jota is injured and we have 5 subs and will play every midweek. Firmino will get his games.

It's not like he'll be left out altogether like Minamino after January. We need to keep him.

Even if Firmino played week in and week out the Brazil manager doesnt seem to rate him highly. He has his favourites and Firmino is not one

He hasnt been called up since July of 2021 which I am sure some of that is down to injuries I also think some if Tite has never been a fan, so I would say Firmino is 50/50 on whether he gets called up to the WC regardless of how much he is playing for us

It would be foolish to sell him considering the world cup. This is the most depth we have ever had in the forward line. Both Jota and Nunez will play significant minutes in the world cup.

The schedule would be hectic post WC and we would require the entire squad to be available to get through that phase. Bobby may not bang in the goals but he can definitely contribute big time.

If he was sold we would have to replace him. Thought it was odd we were being linked with forwards but would explain why.

Klopp should hopefully have him wanting to stay anyway. We aren't desperate for the money and got the fee for Mane and Salah sorted.

I can't see him going this summer but think it begs the question if there is a number we'd find too good to turn down given his age, only having a year left on his contract and not being anywhere near as influential the last couple of seasons. If there was genuine interest at 20 million I'd expect us to reject it but if someone was determined to bring him in it'd be interesting to see how much they could test us for. He'd probably take the piss for plenty of years playing for Juve in Serie A but I think it'd be ideal for us to extend his deal by at least another year, imagine Bobby would be looking for a longer term commitment, though.

If Bobby tells the club he wants to leave for a new challenge or more regular football then Klopp won’t stand in his way, just as Sadio did. As long as the club gets a fair price then nobody can really argue he doesn’t deserve a move if that’s what he wants. He has been a true legend for us and revolutionised the number 9 role in this country. Think this will all be down to what Bobby wants, but I really hope he wants to stay with us.

I think thats right, but I dont think Jurgen would allow it a week before the season starts
If he's being asked to head the ball too frequently - which isn't exactly his specialty - it could affect his ear and cause an infection. Especially if the ball hits him on the ear directly.

Last year of his deal as well. Hard to see an Italian club spending big on someone they can sign for nothing in Jan on a pre-contract.

That’s a fair point, we don’t want to be left scrambling around late on for a replacement, but you would hope we have planned for his exit at some point.

Carvalho will be part of that. We've gone into the season planning very much for Bobby to play a key role though with 3 forwards leaving (all of who played the 9 role at times last season). And Jota with an ongoing injury from last season. Nu nez and Carvalho in but both still to make their competitive debut.

Klopp will let him go if he wishes to though but would hope to talk him round.

Italian club spending big on a 30+ player in their last year never realistic, or hopefully Bobby wanting to up sticks and go there now.

I could understand him wanting the security of a 3-4 year deal next year though rather than the 1-2 we ight offer. Plus a signing on bonus

Yeah I think it all depends on what we're offering him, if we're even offering him anything.  Always felt like he might leave on a free at the end of his contract, and spending the twilight of your career playing for Juve isn't all that bad, can see the attraction if they want him as a starter.

If the bid is true and Juve are a bit desperate, it might be possible to milk the fee a bit more to say 25 mil. Then it becomes a bit of a puzzle of what to do. Firmino has had a lot less input than Mané, especially recently, then in addition he's a year older. It might reach the point where the offer is too good to turn down. On the other hand finding an able replacement in the right age range and determining whether that player fits in with Jota's versatility is difficult.

It looks like Belotti is still available and he might be a willing backup #9 and may well be an upgrade on Origi as a supersub. However, I think the wages might be a bit too much for a pure backup there even on a free.

Núñez is likely to be the number one striker and then Jota basically is the first backup across the full front three. So where would Firmino's replacement actually get to play? Is Carvalho good enough to not warrant Jota on the left side? Quite a difficult set of circumstances should Juve be willing to break the bank for him. Obviously not an ideal time to lose a very good squad player, but at the same time every player has a price.

You do realise they can sign a pre contract with him for zero fee in 5 months’ time (hence this very transparent non-existent bid)? This is their transfer MO. There’s nothing to be milked and no ‘puzzle’ to solve. When Bobby eventually leaves LFC, we won’t get 2.5m for him, never mind 25m.

Whether we let him go (like Juve have this summer with Dybala) at the end of his contract next summer or not, is another matter. As Klopp says “let’s see how this year goes”. Hopefully he continues to be influential rather than peripheral, and signs an extension.

Fairly explicit. Words he can’t backpedal on weeks later flogging him to Juve, without looking a fool.

Also, exactly the right noises to let Bobby know how much he’s appreciated and needed.

Yes, he can sign a precontract in a few months.

But how about asking the player if he wants to go. Right now i'd say the answer from Bobby is no. He loves it here. His wife loves it here.

It might be the case that Firmino wants three years just like Salah and that might be holding things up a bit. I'm 50/50 on whether he'll be at the club next summer. Hopefully he is.
