According to reports from The Sun, Bayern Munich want Firmino to quit Liverpool this summer. The German giants are looking to rebuild their squad, and have earmarked Firmino as one of their top targets.
Boss Hans Flick believes the Brazilian is an ideal candidate to partner Robert Lewandowski who turns 32 this summer.
Bayern believe that Liverpool would be willing to offload one of the three front-men, the other two being Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane, as the Reds are preparing a move for Timo Werner.
The German giants are ready to test Liverpool’s resolve with a £75 million bid. Many Liverpool fans believe that Bayern should at least double that amount for consideration.
Waiting for John Henry to tweet asking them what they are smoking up there. 🤣

I think @LFC fans will be laughing at the price tag & at the arrogance to presume that Bobby Firmino would consider leaving the current best club team in the world for a 'top 5-6' – at best – club…

75 million is nearly as big of an insult as arsenals 40 million and £1.

Key for Liverpool
Firmino is a massive player for Liverpool, and a vital cog in the machine at Anfield. He is a complete striker who plays an unselfish role alongside Salah and Mane, helping both of them to prosper.
The 28-year-old has a contract at Anfield till 2023, and Liverpool have no intention of selling him.
Having sold Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona for a reported fee of around £142 million, Liverpool should at least demand a similar type of fee for Firmino who is a Champions League winner, and is likely to win the Premier League title with the Reds at the end of the season.
