Barcelona will reportedly attempt to sign Liverpool striker Roberto Firmino during the summer transfer window.

The Brazil international has been an excellent player for the Reds with 94 goals and 81 assists from 311 appearances.

Despite this, there is uncertainty over his future amid the lack of progress in contract talks over the past few months.

The 30-year-old has entered the final 18 months of his deal, and there is a contract stand-off amid his wage demands.

The Reds are currently prioritising the renewal of Mohamed Salah, and they are open to offloading him in the summer.

According to El Nacional, the Blaugrana are one of his long-term admirers, and could lodge a bid of €20m to sign him.

It is unclear whether the Reds will accept a such a low-ball figure as the striker is attracting plenty of transfer interest.

Juventus and Bayern Munich have also been linked with the former Hoffenheim forward alongside AC Milan.

All three clubs could be prepared to pay a higher fee for his services.
