French club planning shock move for £80m-rated Liverpool superstar

PSG keen on signing Liverpool attacker Roberto Firmino and set to battle with Real Madrid and Barcelona for the player. Thomas Tuchel wants to strengthen the front-line, and his primary target is Brazil international who has a fantastic campaign and proves his worth one more time.

Edinson Cavani and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting already up to 30 and they need back-up. German manager will do everything to add him this July, but it will be difficult as Los Rojiblancos and Blaugrana also planning to make a bid during the transfer window.

The 27-year-old centre-forward joined the Reds from Hoffenheim in 2015 with a £36m deal. He is one of the best strikers in Europe and a key figure for the club. In this season, Brazilian attacker already played 47 games, scored 16 goals and made eight assists in all competition.

It is an impressive consequence, and he can improve his results during this campaign. Firmino has contracted with the Merseyside club until 2023, and his release clause is nearly £80m. His price could increase and become much more during this season.

Roberto is a regular member of the national team and also helped them to reach the quarter-final in the 2018 Mundial, but after losing 2-1 with Belgium, they kicked out from the tournament.

Parisians signed several players last summer like Thilo Kehrer from Schalke 04, Juan Bernat from Bayern Munich, Kylian Mbappe from Monaco, Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting from Stoke City and Gianluigi Buffon from Juventus. French club also added Zenit midfielder Leandro Paredes this winter with a £40m deal.
