Video: Liverpool target Roberto Firmino in action — “deal agreed”

Reports on Tuesday night claim Liverpool are on the verge of signing Hoffenheim attacking midfielder Roberto Firmino, and here’s a glimpse of what the Reds might expect from the Brazil international.


The 23-year-old is expected to complete a move to Liverpool within the next 24 hours and would be seen as a big coup for Brendan Rodgers and his recruitment staff.

Firmino scored seven goals in 33 appearances for Hoffenheim during 2014/15 and his currently representing Brazil at the Copa America in Chile, for whom he has won nine caps.

This Is Anfield’s Jack Lusby recently wrote a scouting report on Firmino, concluding the former Figueirense man “offers Rodgers both quality and flexibility in all areas of the game.

“For £18 million Firmino would be a bargain; for £30 million his signing would arguably still be justified.”
