Danny Mills has said on talkSPORT (11:41am, July 25, 2022) that Roberto Firmino would not be a huge loss if Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool sell him in the summer transfer window.

The former Leeds United and Manchester City star believes that Liverpool would be strong and competitive enough without Firmino, who has been linked with a move to Juventus this summer.

TuttoJuve reported over the weekend that Juventus are considering a move for Firmino – who earns £180,000 per week as salary (SalarySport) – and have made an offer of €23 million (£19.58 million).

Mills said about Firmino on talkSPORT (11:41am, July 25, 2022): “It’s not a huge loss, is it, realistically?

“When you look at the players they have got, they have just brought in obviously Darwin Nunez, they have got Diego Jota as well, you have got enough cover in those areas.

“Realistically how many games would Firmino start this year? Not many would be the answer. A few cup games.”

Should Liverpool sell Roberto Firmino to Juventus?

In our view, Liverpool should not sell Roberto Firmino to Juventus – or any other club for that matter – in the summer transfer window.

Unless, of course, they receive a much bigger fee than what Juventus are offering and if the 30-year-old Brazil international forward – who cost Liverpool £29 million in transfer fees (BBC Sport) – himself wants to leave.

Yes, Firmino had injury problems last season, and Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has options in attack now, especially with Darwin Nunez having joined the Reds this suummer.

However, Liverpool need a big and strong squad to compete with Manchester City for the Premier League title next season as well as win the UEFA Champions League.
