Reports from Spain hint that Barcelona are making efforts to tempt Brazilian forward Roberto Firmino away from the English Premier League giants, Liverpool.
The Blaugrana are therefore preparing a big-money bid to launch in the coming winter transfer window for the highly rated player.
Although, Firmino’s performance as been satisfactory this season but last season saw his best where he fired the Reds alongside Egyptian striker Mohamed Salah and Senegal international Sadio Mane to the Champions League finals as well as finishing the Premier League behind winners Manchester City.
Barcelona coach Valverde who watched the player last season is ready to break the bank to have him join the Camp Nou for the second half of the season.
Firmino has scored about 4 goals this season in 13 appearances with two assists so far this season to help his side maintain the third spot in the Premier League table.
However, it is uncertain if Liverpool will be willing to let the Brazilian international leave the club with five years left to the end of his contract with the club.
Meanwhile, it has been revealed that the Reds forced the Spanish side to include in the deal that ensured the sale of Philippe Coutinho that the Catalans will not return for any player at Anfield until after three years.
