It has been rumored for some time that Roberto Firmino will leave Liverpool this summer.
Firmino is unhappy with his status in the English club because he believes that next season he will be a backup option in the attack, and Darwin Nunez and Diogo Jota will surely have an advantage before him.
Because of this, the Brazilian striker showed a desire to leave “Anfield” this summer, and a few days ago there were speculations that Firmino could sign for Juventus.
In Liverpool, they want to be ready for anything and are reportedly already looking for the option of which striker to bring if Firmino really leaves the club by the end of the summer transfer window.
The English media shocked everyone by announcing that they have a backup plan at Liverpool and that they will do their best to bring Lautaro Martinez from Inter if Firmino agrees to a transfer to Juventus.
Liverpool is ready to pay around 80 million euros to bring in an excellent Argentinian striker, and if he succeeds, he will really shake the football world.
Lautaro was linked with several clubs this summer, but the transfer did not happen as he was turned down by Arsenal and Chelsea. However, Liverpool’s interest is another matter and the Mirror believe the Argentine would be hard pressed to turn him down.
Also, Inter wouldn’t just turn down an offer from Liverpool, especially after Romelu Lukaku returned to the club and Simone Inzaghi has a really large number of strikers at his disposal.
However, Lautaro’s transfer to Liverpool depends solely on Firmino, who in the coming days must make a decision whether he will leave or stay at Anfield.
