Liverpool sign Roberto Firmino from Hoffenheim

Liverpool have completed the signing of Brazil forward Roberto Firmino from Hoffenheim in a £21.3m deal.
Formerly with Figueirense in Brazil, Firmino can play anywhere across the front three, and is currently on Copa America duty with Brazil.

Liverpool chief executive Ian Ayre flew to Chile to get the deal done, and did so in the early hours of Wednesday morning, UK time - though the deal is still subject to a medical that will not take place until after Brazil have concluded their participation in the Copa America.
Liverpool will pay £21.3m now, but the fee could eventually rise to £28m which would make him Liverpool's second most expensive player after Andy Carroll. 

Firmino arrived at Hoffenheim at the start of 2011 having been signed for £3.52m as a 19-year-old, and has scored 48 times in 152 appearances for the German side, notching seven times in the Bundesliga last term.
