EPL: You don’t want to be caught short – Carragher warns Klopp against selling Liverpool star

Former Premier League defender, Jamie Carragher has warned Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool against selling Robert Firmino amid reports linking the striker to Juventus.

Firmino has been linked with a move away from Liverpool this summer.

His current contract with Liverpool will expire next summer and there have been no indications that a new offer is on the table for him.

And Carragher, a Liverpool legend, believes Klopp and the Reds should risk losing the Brazilian for nothing next summer rather than get ‘caught short’.

Speaking to Football Daily, Carragher said: “I don’t think it’s a risk losing him for nothing. I have felt for a couple of years now that Firmino would see this contract out and move on for nothing.

“I think getting £19million or keeping Firmino next season, I would probably keep him. The situation Liverpool find themselves in, they don’t want to be caught short.

“I think Firmino will have a big role. Listen, Nunez might take time to settle and he’s playing in the Premier League. And that is not just about his ability, it is about coming to a different league.

‘So, I think Firmino could be really important this season and I think he might actually start the first few games of the season and I can imagine Nunez coming off the bench.”

“I’m not quite sure about the Juventus links. Obviously, we have spent a lot of money on a striker and Juventus play a 4-3-3, if I’m not mistaken, so I could not see Firmino playing wide or going there to be an understudy,” he added.
