Jurgen Klopp confirms Liverpool are holding contract talks with crucial player - they can't afford to lose him

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has confirmed the club is currently holding contract talks with Roberto Firmino.

The Brazilian striker has found his form from a few seasons ago during this campaign and scored again this weekend during the Reds' 3-1 win against Southampton.

Firmino's current contract runs out next summer and Klopp has confirmed contract talks are ongoing.

Klopp: He deserves everything

Klopp told The Telegraph: “Normal conversations are happening as well, so we will see what happens there."

“It’s a blow, definitely,” said the Liverpool boss.

“It was [a blow] for me to be honest. I’m happy we have Bobby, but he deserves it. I think he deserves everything, to be honest.

“It just shows how incredibly good and talented this Brazilian squad is if you can leave a player like Bobby Firmino out. Madness.

“Of course, we will talk; we did already, and will maybe do again. He’s fine but, as everyone can imagine, very disappointed.”

Liverpool have struggled at times for goals this season despite signing striker Darwin Nunez from Benfica.

Firmino has played an integral role for the team, scoring incredibly important goals this season.

Klopp's men currently sit five points off fourth-placed Newcastle in the Premier League but are in the knockout rounds of the Champions League when the new year comes around.

They will next face Real Madrid in the round of 16.
