Liverpool set to beat rivals for Brazilian ace – report

Reports in English media claim that Liverpool might have pipped bitter rivals, Manchester United in the pursuit of Brazil international, Roberto Firmino. Reports claim that the Hoffenheim midfielder might be considering the possibility of signing for the Reds this summer as Brendan Rodgers looks to improve on the team that struggled for form and consistency throughout last season.

Manchester United are reported to be the player’s preferred destination but so far, the player’s current club has not received any offer from the Red Devils which means that Liverpool could steal the march over their rivals if they make a formal bid for Firmino.

The Brazilian has been in sensational form for his German team over the past couple of seasons and has already stated that he wants to move to the Premier League this summer in a bid to further develop himself and nail down a regular place in the Brazilian squad.
