Liverpool are tipped to next wave farewell to Roberto Firmino as Jurgen Klopp’s ruthless remodelling of the Reds attack continues.

The triumverate of Firmino, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane will go down as one of the best attacking trios in history. Between them, they scored a total of 374 times for the Reds over their five seasons together. And Liverpool have won all that could be won, with the club also going close to a quadruple in 2021/22.

But the January arrival of Luis Diaz from Porto dropped a heavy hint of what was to come. The Colombian slotted in effortlessly into their attack, often being labelled as the signing of the season, such was his impact.

The biggest indicator was still to come though when earlier this month, Liverpool shattered their club record for the signing of Darwin Nunez.
