The versatility, experience and physique of Roberto Firmino would make him a perfect recruit for Juventus… The Brazilian “wants to leave Liverpool before the World Cup” and would be the perfect foil for Dusan Vlahovic
- Serie A giants Juventus reportedly keen to sign Roberto Firmino from Liverpool
- He wants to leave Anfield to gain more playing time ahead of the World Cup
- Firmino would bring versatility, experience and more physicality to Juventus
- He would also save the club’s money which they could use to sign Lenadro Paredes
Roberto Firmino is the surprise name that Juventus have worked quietly to bring to Turin. The Brazilian is not only a striker capable of replacing Dusan Vlahovic, but an excellent player in all attacking roles.
According to ‘Corriere dello Sport’, Firmino wants to leave Liverpool before his contracts expire in 12 months to be fully fit for the Winter World Cup.
He wants to play regularly and not lose his sparkle and enthusiasm playing second fiddle to Darwin Nunez – the new striker chosen by Jurgen Klopp to guide the Reds to glory in the Premier League and across Europe.

In the city of Turin, Firmino is considered the player most likely to inherit the versatile role of Mario Mandzukic: half-attacker, winger in 4-3-3 or simple center forward.
Firmino has the feet of a playmaker capable of settling the maneuver and becoming a second juggler in midfield. He is also physically strong but at the same time very mobile in and out of the penalty area.
Massimilimo Allegri is looking for a smart partner for Vlahovic, aware that the Serbian national team star will play 90% of matches in all competitions.

At his side or in his place you need an uninhibited attacker without tactical prejudices, a player who knows how to assist and accelerate the dribble of the whole team without losing clarity in the penalty area.
Moise Kean plays with a lot of intelligence and the two goals scored against Barcelona are a great start to the season even though Juventus want to have a third man to minimize the chances of running out of goals in a fundamental season.
For this reason, Allegri initially asked the club to buy either Marko Arnautovic or Alvaro Morata while understanding the financial difficulties in reaching at least one of the two targets in the market.

Firmino is the joker who has satisfied everyone in the card game available to the club: the coach, the team and especially the CEO Arrivabene.

There are many difficulties in bringing Morata back to the club and they are mainly related to the excessive cost demanded by Atletico Madrid.
According to ‘SportMediaset’, the Bianconeri have decided to bet on Firmino to add attacking experience to a squad which currently only has U23 strikers like Kean and Vlahovic.

Firmino would cost around £17million less than Morata and based on these extraordinary savings, Juventus will also be able to complete the purchase of Lenadro Paredes from PSG.
The CEO Maurizio Arrivabene is a very serious. He has prepared an accountant and knows all the needs of Allegri’s team: buying Firmino and Paredes with the money planned for the purchase of Morata alone is a winning technical and tactical strategy.
During Klopp’s press conference on Thursday ahead of the Community Shield this weekend, the German manager described the Brazilian as the ‘heart and soul’ of his team.
Firmino is the right man in the right place, however, a man of international experience who can lead Juventus to a difficult but not impossible dream in Europe given the presence of Paul Pogba and Angel Di Maria.
