Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge is prepared to move abroad in order to play more football.
Firmino has been used in the central striker role for the majority of the season. But when the Brazilian was benched for Sunday's Merseyside derby, Dominic Solanke was used as his replacement.
With the World Cup coming up in June, Sturridge is aware he'll struggle to make the England squad if he remains on the bench at Liverpool.
It is understood that both would be prefer to offer a loan deal.
