Roberto Firmino has signed a new contract with Liverpool, committing his future to the Anfield club for at least the next four years.
The Brazilian arrived from Hoffenheim in a £29m deal back in 2015, and has established himself as one of Jurgen Klopp’s most important players as Liverpool improved season-on-season to secure Champions League qualification and reach the semi-finals of the same competition, where they take a 5-2 lead into this week’s second leg at Roma.
Currently enjoying his best season since moving to England, Firmino was rewarded with a new contract by the Reds who will now also look to tie star man Mo Salah to an improved, longer-term deal.
“It was an easy decision,” Firmino said in a statement.
“The club have taken me in in an incredible way and I’ve grown a lot here with my work with the support of the whole team. I am very, very happy here.
“Everything fits in the best possible way. My teammates are fantastic and I am very grateful to be able to play with them at this club.
“I love to play for Liverpool FC. The fans are excellent and fantastic in how they support us all the way. They support us throughout the games and the work they do during the match is beautiful.”
Firmino has netted 27 times this season, taking his goal total to 50 in 140 games.
