Liverpool Sign Brazilian Forward, Firmino From Hoffenheim

Liverpool have added Brazilian forward, Robert Firmino to their squad in a deal that saw them pay Hoffenheim about £29m.

Firmino, 23, is currently with his country at the ongoing Copa America and will have a medical upon returning from the continental tournament taking place in Chile.

He has signed a five-year deal and is the fifth player to move to Anfield this summer, following in the footsteps of Burnley’s Danny Ings, goalkeeper Adam Bogdan, defender Joe Gomez and midfielder James Milner.

He becomes the Reds second most expensive signing. The Merseyside outfit paid Newcastle United £35m in 2011.
