Liverpool look set to offer Roberto Firmino the chance to finish his career at Anfield, with rumours that a 'contract for life' is on the cards for the charismatic superstar.

So let me get this straight, I go to bed early for once and now suddenly Liverpool want to offer Roberto Firmino a contract that'll keep him at Liverpool for the rest of his career, and want to bring Keita in early? I should do this more often.— Mik (@MikLFC) January 11, 2018
The Brazilian's star has shone brightly in the Premier League since joining from Bundesliga outfit Hoffenheim in the summer of 2015, with Firmino flourishing in particular under current boss Jurgen Klopp.
The 26-year old has helped lead Liverpool's goalscoring assault on the Premier League and Champions League, netting 16 times this season. With a potential contract for life in the pipeline, fans unbridled joy at the prospect seemingly knows no bounds.
