West Brom striker Charlie Austin has never shirked from the fact that he’s a boyhood Liverpool supporter, no matter what club he’s been at, and earlier this week he reacted to a transfer report linking one of their key players with a move away.
According to The Sun, Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich are preparing a £75m bid for Reds centre-forward Roberto Firmino this summer as he is one of their top targets.
This has left Austin in hysterics as he replied to a BBC Sport tweet about the gossip.
Here’s his verdict…

Clearly, the Albion man would be gutted to see the Brazillian leave Anfield in the summer and would not even consider a bid for him at all.
Former Reds midfielder Charlie Adam was in agreement in Austin’s replies, stating that the bid would have to start with three figures at least, presumably meaning £100m or more.
Although, the 30-year-old would probably have said the same thing no matter the figure going by his reaction.
