Emerging reports reveal that North London side Arsenal will not be able to secure the signature of Brazilian and Liverpool forward Roberto Firmino either now or in the future.
Although, the Gunners are yet to make any bid for the Liverpool star but it has been revealed that when the Reds secured the service of Roberto Firmino from German Bundesliga outfit Hoffenheim, a clause “anti-Arsenal” was added to stop the Emirates Stadium side from bidding for him.
This step was taken by the Merseyside club after the North London side came close to luring former striker Luis Suarez some years back before he eventually had a move to the Spanish La Liga outfit Barcelona.
Suggestions are that the Gunners have been making lots of attempts in the past and behind the scene to steal a number of Liverpool players which is already being stopped with the clause.
Roberto Firmino had a perfect last season, merging his force with Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane to secure a second finish in the Premier League for the Reds as well as reaching the Champions League finals.
However, the Brazilian international has made 23 appearances so far this season and has been able to deliver six goals or his side across all competitions.
