The collateral damage of signing the Gakpo


Roberto Firmino continues without renewing his contract at Liverpool. The Brazilian and the ‘red’ club have still not found a point of agreement, and the signing of Cody Gakpoit seems that the negotiations that have been going on for the past few months have cooled down even more.

Firmino has not found his best level in recent seasons, injuries, and the irregularity of his game, which made Liverpool look for a solution in the market due to the carioca’s lack of performance. The ‘reds’ signed DIogo Jota, Luis Díaz, and Darwin Núñezso the Mané-Salah-Firmino striker that made Liverpool the champion of Europe disappeared, mainly because the role of the Brazilian was relegated to the bench.

But during this time the situation has changed, the removal of mane and serious injury Luis Diaz and Diogo Jota they gave ownership back to Bobby and he responded with a great performance. Firmino has 9 goals and 4 assists in 21 games, very notable figures that rank the striker as the team’s second highest scorer.

This return to ownership and the recovery of his level led to the approaches of the ‘reds’ towards the Brazilian, but Liverpool’s latest moves can be seen as Firmino is on the starting ramp.

Diogo Jota came in the 2019/20 season in place of 42 million euros, Luis Diaz came just a year ago for others 45 ‘kilo’, Darwin Núñez broke the market worth 80 million with another 20 in summer variablesand this winter Liverpool paid another 42 million plus another 13 in variables for Gakpo. more than 200 million The ‘reds’ have been left with forwards for the last 2 seasons, and in this situation, that Firmino was transferred is more than understandable.

Despite this, Bobby takes advantage of this context to reassert himself and show that he belongs 31 years he can continue to be important in elite teams in Europe. Gakpo’s arrival could be the trigger for Firmino’s departureand teams like Atletico Madrid They have been interested in his inclusion at the end of the season, which could be one of the ‘bargains’ this summer.
