Since joining Liverpool in the summer of 2015, former Brazilian midfielder Roberto Firmino has created the strongest front three with Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah, scoring numerous goals against opposing defenses.
After leaving Liverpool on a free transfer when his contract expired last season, the player sought a new home in Saudi Arabia. He joined Al Ahli along with Riyad Mahrez and Alain Saint-Maximin. He scored a hat trick in the opening game of the season and was named captain of his new club.
However, since the opening game, he has only recorded two assists, which can be said to be insufficient numbers for a center forward. The former Liverpool forward, who has not been getting results at the Middle East club, is likely to leave the club this winter, according to the TEAM Talk.
“Now, TEAMtalk can exclusively reveal that Al Ahli are prepared to listen to offers for Firmino when the transfer window reopens in January to allow them to make room in their squad for any potential new signings.”
“This would allow the Saudi club to reduce the number of foreign players in their squad and give them the opportunity to bring in another big-name signing.”
This October, he turned 32, stepping into veteran territory and nearing the end of his career.
The former Brazilian forward won all kinds of titles with Liverpool, but will he have a future leaving Saudi Arabia after only six months…?
