Transfer news: Barca, Inter Milan in line for Firmino

According to some sources, Barcelona and Inter Milan are among the first teams to express an interest in Liverpool forward Roberto Firmino.

The 31-year-old has opted to quit Anfield when his contract expires in the summer after eight seasons, and the latest report indicates that interest in the Brazilian's services is already starting to surface.

Xavi Hernandez's side are poised to continue their pattern of acquiring players on free transfers, with the LaLiga leaders promptly telling Firmino's representation of their interest. Inter will also look to bolster their scoring options, as it is unclear whether Romelu Lukaku will stay after his loan from Chelsea expires.

Both clubs are expected to face competition, with one undisclosed Saudi Pro League club apparently hoping to sign Firmino. While he was linked to Al Nassr in January, it is unclear if they have returned as a possible destination.

As he prepared for Manchester United's visit on Sunday, Klopp said Marcus Rashford's comeback to "world-class" form this season has even pleased him. "It's difficult, if not impossible, to be enthusiastic about something positive at Manchester United when you've been Liverpool manager for seven and a half years," he added. I'm not rooting for them to win, but I am really delighted for Rashford.
