England football giants, Liverpool FC, have signed Brazilian striker, Roberto Firmino, from Hoffenheim for about £29m.
The 23-year-old’s five-year deal was subject to a medical, which would take place after his return from the Copa America in Chile.
The Brazilian forward has scored 47 goals in 151 games for Hoffenheim, becoming the Reds’ second most expensive player after Andy Carroll, who was signed from Newcastle for £35m in 2011.
Liverpool have so far resisted two offers from Manchester City for England forward, Raheem Sterling.
However, having spent the last four and a half seasons in the Bundesliga, Firmino was on target for Brazil in their 2-1 Copa America victory over Venezuela on Sunday.
