Real Madrid are considering an offer for Liverpool forward Roberto Firmino, reports The Daily Mail. The Brazilian striker’s contract runs out at the end of the season and Madrid are keen on signing Firmino to bolster Carlo Ancelotti’s options up front.
Madrid president Florentino Perez is keen on adding a new striker to his club and Firmino could be an interesting option. The 31-year-old has a proven track record in Europe and could be considering a back-up role behind Karim Benzema. The French striker also has an expiring contract, but it is expected that he will be signing a new two-year contract before the end of the season.
Liverpool have tried to convince Firmino to sign a new deal at Anfield, but the forward isn’t too happy with his squad role this season. Firmino has fallen down the pecking order under Jurgen Klopp, who is preferring Darwin Nunez, Jota and Cody Gakpo as a centre-forward. The report states that there are several teams interested in Firmino, including clubs from Germany, Italy and Spain.
