The Old Lady contend adding the 31-year-old to their ranks will revive their standing in the Serie A after a decline in recent months.

However, landing Firmino won't be a walk in the park, considering their Italian rivals AC Milan are equally keen on a move.

Liverpool, meanwhile, are also hoping to retain their starman beyond the summer, given his seniority within the squad.

Additionally, the Brazil international has been in hot form this season, having already scored eight goals for the Merseysiders.

Six of those goals have come in the Premier League, while two were scored in the Champions League.
