Juventus Want Liverpool’s Roberto Firmino in Any Swap Deal Involving Adrien Rabiot

  • Juventus intend to use Liverpool's interest in Adrien Rabiot to land Roberto Firmino with the club in need of attackers
  • The Old Lady have lost Alvaro Morata and Paulo Dybala, thus remaining with Moise Kean and Dusan Vlahovic as the only recognised strikers
  • Firmino could consider leaving Anfield given that the club acquired Darwin Nunez at the start of the transfer window

Italian giants Juventus intend to ask for Roberto Firmino should Liverpool pursue Adrien Rabiot. Liverpool head coach Jurgen Klopp is understood to be keen on adding a midfielder and has set his eyes on Rabiot.

Previous reports had mentioned that Liverpool were ready to offer Naby Keita in a straight swap deal. Juventus are, however, not interested in the Guinean.

Firmino's place in the Liverpool squad could come under serious jeopardy after the club completed the signing of Darwin Nunez from Benfica. Last season he was also used sparingly as injuries curtailed his season. Sadio Mane, who has since moved to Bayern Munich, was often deployed in his role.

Juventus, meanwhile are in dire need of attacking reinforcements. Alvaro Morata has returned to his parent club Atletico Madrid while Paulo Dybala left at the end of the season following the expiry of his contract.

Klopp is seemingly planning to revamp his midfield as he aims to once again toe-to-toe with Manchester City, who are zeroing in on Kalvin Phillips.
