Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has denied that Roberto Firmino is headed for the Anfield exit.
Firmino has been linked with a departure following the arrivals of Darwin Nunez, Luis Diaz and Diogo Jota in recent transfer windows.
But Klopp has denied that the Brazilian will leave.
“Bobby is crucial for us, the heart and soul of this team,” the German said.
“Everything looks really good and I am absolutely fine with Firmino. For me, no doubt about his quality, so yes, he is essential for us”.
