Liverpool’s in-form Brazilian star wanted by Euro giants (not Coutinho)

Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain are keeping a close eye on Liverpool’s Roberto Firmino ahead of the summer transfer window, according to reports from Fichajes.

The Brazil international only joined the Reds last year from Hoffenheim, and despite a slow start he has exploded into life over the winter period.

Five goals in his last six Premier League games, during which time he’s been mostly used as a ‘false nine’, have wowed the Anfield faithful, and reports claim that PSG’s interest has been piqued.

The Parisians’ head coach, Laurent Blanc, is thought to be worried about the futures of attackers Edinson Cavani and Zlatan Ibrahimovic, and Firmino is seen as a viable option to step in.

Liverpool paid close to £29m for their 24-year-old star over the summer and would surely expect to make a huge profit to sell so quickly.

Firmino has been capped 11 times at senior international level and was a part of the Selecao set-up for the 2015 Copa America.
