Juventus set to make increased bid to sign Liverpool versatile forward

By | August 7, 2022

Serie A giants, Juventus are reportedly set to increase their £19.5m bid for Liverpool striker Roberto Firmino.

Although Dusan Vlahovic joined Italian giants in January, Juve are keen to strengthen their attacking line after Alvaro Morata made a return to Atletico Madrid following the conclusion of his loan spell.

The Old Lady have reportedly identified Brazilian forward, Roberto Firmino as a potential transfer target, and they have signalled their intent by presenting an offer to the Merseyside Reds.

However, according to the Liverpool Echo, Italian giants are considering increasing their offer after their £19.5m bid was met with doubts by the Reds hierarchy.

Firmino currently has a year left to run on his current deal, while the addition of Luis Diaz in January and the recent arrival of Darwin Nunez could see the Brazilian his time limited at Anfield and could leave the club this summer.

Despite Juventus showing an interest in Roberto Firmino, the report claims that Liverpool are not prepared to sell the South American forward this summer.

Juventus also linked with a move for another Liverpool star, Naby Keita who has failed out of favour under Jurgen Klopp since his transfer from RB Leipzig.
