In a statement posted to their official website, Liverpool gushed over their contributions to the club.
It concluded: “With the visit of Aston Villa on Saturday being the Reds’ final home fixture of the campaign, special acknowledgements will be paid to the quartet at Anfield, with further tributes to follow across the club’s digital platforms after the end of the season as we wish Roberto, Naby, James, Alex and their families the very best for the future.
“All four players will depart with our gratitude and appreciation for the contribution they have made.”
Firmino, 31, will leave Anfield a cult hero, having made 360 appearances for the Reds.
The Brazilian joined under Brendan Rodgers in 2015, going on to score 109 times for the club while helping them to the Premier League title, Champions League, an FA Cup and League Cup.
While no move has yet been confirmed, Firmino has been linked with a switch to Barcelona.
Milner, meanwhile, has played 330 time for the Reds since joining on a free transfer from Manchester City in 2015.
The 37-year-old is expected to join Brighton this summer.

Keita arrived as a much heralded £48million signing from RB Leipzig in 2018.
He struggled to ever hit the heights at Anfield and has endured an injury-plagued final campaign at Liverpool – playing just 13 times in all competitions.
Despite his lack of action, the 28-year-old has attracted interest from former club RB Leipzig, as well as Borussia Dortmund.
Oxlade-Chamberlain, meanwhile, has become something of a forgotten man at Liverpool.
The former Arsenal ace has suffered terrible bad luck with injuries down the years – managing just 146 Reds appearances in six years.
Despite his injury woes, Oxlade-Chamberlain was linked with Brighton, Aston Vill and Newcastle earlier this year.
