Austin pleads with Liverpool to retain Bayern Munich target Firmino

West Bromwich Albion star Charlie Austin is desperate for Liverpool to hold onto Roberto Firmino.

Reports in the press have indicated that Bayern Munich may be willing to make a big money offer for the attacker.

But Austin, who is a Reds fan, does not think the 28-year-old no.9 should be sold under any circumstances.

Firmino has eight goals and seven assists in 25 league games this term.

In a series of Twitter posts, Austin said any Bayern offer was not enough, and that he would rather lose Sadio Mane or Mohamed Salah before seeing Firmino leave.

Austin has previously posted a picture of himself with a Firmino 9 shirt.
