ripping the reward

Not quite. Firmino is a midfielder asked to play as CF by Klopp. Firmino was trained and played most of his career as a midfielder which shows by his instincts to link up, drop deep and act as an enabler rather than a goal scorer.Style-wise I'd say he's a fairly typical, classic 'English' striker; in so far as he's strong, selfless, good in the air, holds the ball up well and brings people into play. That's what these pundits seem to be hinting at when they talk about a classic centre forward.
If he scored 20 a season, he's be pretty much the perfect old-school target man. It's all moot though, as he doesn't!
