Reds preparing new Firmino deal

English Premier League

The Reds saw talisman Coutinho complete his proposed move to Barcelona after the Merseysiders accepted the La Liga giants' £146m bid on Saturday evening.

Liverpool have since been labelled a selling club, with Luis Suarez having also left Anfield for the Nou Camp, while Emre Can has also been tipped with a move away, with Juventus said to be keen on the Germany international.

As such, the Premier League side are determined to avoid a repeat of a star exit in the future and are said to be readying a new and improved deal for Firmino, whose current contract is only set to expire at the end of the 2019/2020 season.

Reports in English papers even go as far as claiming Liverpool are ready to offer Firmino a life-time deal at Anfield, given his excellent form, having scored 30 goals in 76 appearances since joining from Hoffenheim in 2015.
