The name of Roberto Firmino takes strength in the orbit of the FC Barcelona like possible reinforcement in attack for the summer. Although the priority of the managerial is to close the signing of Vitor Roque, the option of the attacker of the Liverpool is attractive when treating of a player with experience and quality that would arrive free after culminating agreement with the 'reds'. The one of Maceió decided to put end to his stage in Anfield after eight years and, in England, plant to the Barça like favourite for ficharle.

In this sense, the 'Daily Mail' advanced does already a pair of months the interest culé in 'Bobby', since the Barcelona directive prioritises the arrival of a forward that can occupy the role of acting of Robert Lewandowski for the 2023/24. The bajón goleador of the Pole in the second stretch of the season evidenció the need to have another '9' in the staff and, without reliable options in the filial, does not remain another that go to the market in search, mainly, of an alternative 'low cost'.

This would avoid some conflict of egos with Lewandowski and would give to Xavi Hernández an offensive letter very interesting in the bench, as although Roberto has played little lately, his numbers keep on being acceptable. In the 2022/23, the player of 31 years adds 11 goals and 5 assistances in 33 apparitions (1.636 minutes), statistics quite similar to the obtained by Darwin Núñez (15 so many in 42 parties), by the one who the 'reds' paid 80 'kilos' to the Benfica to turn into him his '9' headline.

In total, Firmino adds 109 goals in 360 parties with the 'reds', having won everything from his arrival in the summer of 2015 pertinent of the Hoffenheim. In England, the houses of bet situate to the Barça in the leadership of the 'career' by his signing on clubs like Napoli and Real Madrid. The 'White House' also sees to the Brazilian like a viable alternative for suplir to Karim Benzema come to less after winning the Balloon of Gold. Inter, Milan and Juventus also would be interested in the one of Maceió, although the forward would prioritise to play in Spain.

Vitor Roque Keeps on being the first option for the Barça

Further of the financial urgencies, in Barcelona keep to Vitor Roque like priority for this summer. The directive does not want to lose to another 'crack' and, after the signing of Endrick by the Real Madrid, Joan Laporta wants to give the hit fichando to the forward with better projection in Brazil, adding him to the first team this same year so that it take advantage of the experience of Lewandowski. However, the refusal of the Athletico Paranaense to negotiate his price keeps on being the main obstacle for 'tie up' to 'Tigrinho'. His club does not have urgency for selling him, but the interest of other big European can to the Barça with the empty hands.
