Anti-Arsenal clause in Firmino contract

The contract of Liverpool forward Roberto Firmino carried a buyout of clause of £82m that can be triggered by any club except Arsenal, according to Football Leaks.

In the latest batch of information released by Football Leaks, the details of Firmino's switch from TSG Hoffenheim in 2015 have been laid bare.

And according to a report published by Belgian publication Le Soir, the Merseyside outfit have taken measures to avoid a repeat of the situation that saw Arsenal make a bid of £40m £1 for Luis Suarez in 2013.

As such, "Arsenal can not buy him for [£83 million]. Nor for any higher amount, moreover."

The Brazil international has made 13 appearances in the Premier League this season, contributing five goals and three assists.
