This comes after current Atleti frontman Luis Suarez was recently linked with a sensational return to Anfield, now it has been suggested Firmino could go in the other direction.
Manager Diego Simeone is believed to be an admirer of the Brazilian’s playing style and could make the 29-year-old part of the remodelling of his strikeforce after Diego Costa left earlier this term and Antoine Griezmann joined Barcelona.
Firmino has fallen below his previous standards this season having previously been heralded as the man who made Liverpool’s famous front three tick.
Despite offering all his usual qualities in terms of being able to create space in behind and triggering Liverpool’s high-press, the Brazilian has suffered a major crisis of confidence in front of goal.
Firmino still has plenty to offer the Reds, especially with a slightly altered squad role and perhaps positional change as Klopp looks to utilise Diogo Jota for what should hopefully be a full season.
