This feels like one of THOSE signings. A signing that genuinely puts an extra spring in your step for the rest of the summer.

Firmino is now a Liverpool player, assuming he passes a medical, in a deal that could rise to £29 million. Only Andy Carroll has cost more for the Reds.

Needless to say, social media has become an extremely positive place for the first time in weeks.

Here is the best of the reaction to a move that could help change Liverpool’s fortunes greatly.

‘Kopstar’ on the forums:

It’s the early signing of ambition/intent that we needed to help convince our other targets that we can not only talk a good project but that we’re actually implementing one too.

‘DanLFC’ on the forums:

Really excited with this player, great signing, well done to the TC and Ayre for getting this done. Feel like he is going to be a terrific player for us for a long time to come.

‘The SweetSilverSong’ on the forums:

Ok, now this is exciting! Coutinho and Firmino creating – two sources of excellent passing now, and solid goal potential from AM.

Now one quality striker of 20+ goals to partner Sturridge, Illara for DM and a quality fullback, and we’re good to go! Won’t mind Kovacic in addition to that either!
