Barcelona chiefs prepared to wait for Liverpool striker Firmino

Barcelona chiefs have Liverpool striker Roberto Firmino on their 2019 shopping list.

However, El Chiringuito says Barca won't be moving for Firmino in January.

Instead, the Catalans are prepared to wait until next summer to go for the Brazil international. Barca see Firmino as a replacement for Luis Suarez.

Barca football staff believe Firmino would complement Leo Messi well in attack.

Liverpool, meanwhile, will be confident fighting Barca off Firmino after securing him to a deal to 2023 earlier this year.
