Ever since Roberto Firmino set foot at Anfield, the Brazilian striker has become the English side's attacking benchmark. After 327 appearances in the red shirt and a total of 98 goals and 74 assists, Roberto Firmino could leave Anfield as an absolute legend at the English club.

After seven years of being Liverpool's benchmark centre-forward, Juventus' offer for Firmino sounds like a mockery. Following the departure of Sadio Mané to Bayern Munich and the possible sale of Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah is the only player from Liverpool's famed attacking trio who will remain at Anfield. The most likely destination, for now, for the Brazilian player is Turin.
