Former West Ham striker Francis McAvennie has tipped Liverpool to offer Roberto Firmino a new contract amid speculations linking him to Juventus.
The year-old joined Liverpool in 2015 for £ 29 million from Hoffenheim on a five-year deal.
The Brazilian international formed a strong attacking trio with Sadio Mane and Mohammed Salah.
The attacking trio has scored 338 goals among them. They are considered one of the best trio in Premier League history.
The 30-year-old has won the Premier League, the Champions League, the FA cup, the Carabao Cup, The UEFA Super Cup, and the FIFA Club World cup.
Roberto Firmino is approaching the final year of his Liverpool Contract and Francis McAvennie believes Liverpool will extend his contract.
What did Francis McAvennie say about Roberto Firmino’s contract situation?
The former Scottish international told The Football Insider: “I would think Man City and Liverpool still treated that as a pre-season game.
“For the big teams, it all starts at the weekend. Firmino is a good player and he’ll get a game wherever he goes to play. You put him on and you know what you’re getting from him.
“Klopp trusts him and that’s why I think they will be discussing a new contract. Klopp won’t want him to go, he’ll want him to stay.
“But he has to produce the goods every week, that’s what happens when you’re in a big team like Liverpool and he’ll know that. And if his standards drop, he will be out.
“For me, I wouldn’t read into him starting in the Community Shield, we’ll know more once the league starts.”
Former Manchester City defender Nedum Onuoha tips Liverpool to beat Manchester City to the Premier League title.
Speaking on ESPN, The former Manchester City defender said: “Liverpool and Manchester City are by far the two sides closest to winning it.
“But it’s always a toss-up, it’s by a point. [New] players have come into City and [some] have left, whereas on Saturday it was the same old Liverpool.
“City is looking for something different, perhaps it means in the league they won’t hit the ground running in the way they need to be competitive [for the title] throughout.
‘But it’s a toss-up and neither would be a surprise. City fans won’t expect Erling Haaland to be at his best in his first season.
“He will score goals, but I’m leaning towards Harry Kane [for top scorer].”
