Liverpool FC are on the brink of signing Brazil forward Roberto Firmino, that's according to widespread reports in the player's homeland today.

 

Globosporte are leading on the story that the Reds are set to beat Manchester United to the signature of the sought-after Hoffenheim forward.

 

They report that the Reds need only to agree a deal with Hoffenheim for the 23-year-old, and say a fee will be no less than 25m euros.

 

They also reckon Firmino will sign a five-year contract with the Reds.

 

Firmino is currently away with Brazil at the Copa America, where he scored the winner against Venezuela on Sunday. He moved to the Bundesliga in 2011, scoring 35 goals in 140 appearances for Hoffenheim.

 

The player's agent indicated that his client would certainly leave Germany this summer, with the Premier League his likely destination.

Is globo esporte a reliable source or is it the express of Brazil?

 

They are "apparently" the Brazilian version of the BBC and only report deals when they have good solid links and know they are true.

 

I've also read that the journalists reporting this are the same ones who are covering the Brazlian camp during the Copa America

I d be delighted with him lacazette or bacca.

 

Is he a striker though

 

I've seen him play a handful of times, only once as a striker for Brazil. He's an attacking midfielder, one we should've got instead of Lallana. He would be a good replacement for Sterling. We would still need a striker though.

I've never seen this cat play, not even watched any youtube clips of him (although I'm just about to). When people say he's an attacking midfielder, are we talking a number 10 or someone who can play in a midfield three as the box to box guy? Can he play wide in front three or a 4-2-3-1?

 

Struggling to see where he fits in with Coutinho and maybe Lallana too, as ideally I wouldn't want either of those two playing wide.

 

If he can play to a good level as a striker then that's where I'd probably want to see him.

There's no way we're signing him. Not a fucking chance that'll happen.

 

I would never have even heard of him but for posts from yourself and a few others over the last couple of years saying we should sign him (apologies if he wasn't one of yours, I know I've seen his name on here a lot and thought you were one banging the drum for him).

 

So, leaving aside the probability we won't sign him, can you fill me in on him by answering my questions in the previous post?

I got negged for posting their story last week when they first broke the news, when it broke yesterday everyone was saying they are the most reliable source on Brazil.

 

This is another example of how easy it is to fake being an itk, when we were linked I guessed it was true as Sterling was leaving and could have pretended I knew for a fact we are getting him.On twitter it's even easier as I see the itks saying we are in for players a few minutes after a journo has reported it yet some fans believe the itks got it from their own sources.

    • Dave, can we have your mun down here for a TLW show ?   I have not managed to convince you to do it in Frogland, and it seems she’ll be way better than you !
    • Jack Charlton, the former Leeds and England defender who won a World Cup winner’s medal in 1966, has died. He was 85. Charlton had been diagnosed with lymphoma in the last year and was also battling dementia. He spent his entire 21-year playing career at Leeds, making a joint club record 773 appearances, before retiring as a player in 1973 and going on to enjoy a successful and colourful career as a manager.   One of English football’s most popular and larger-than-life characters, he had spells in charge of Sheffield Wednesday, Middlesbrough, Newcastle and the Republic of Ireland, who he guided to their first major finals at Euro 88 and two more in the space of 10 years.   A family statement read: “Jack died peacefully on Friday, July 10 at the age of 85. He was at home in Northumberland, with his family by his side. “As well as a friend to many, he was a much-adored husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather.   Charlton won the 1968-69 league title with Leeds, the FA Cup in 1972, the League Cup in 1968 and two UEFA Cups, in 1968 and 1971. His golden moment as a player came at Wembley in 1966 when he and brother Bobby were team-mates in England’s World Cup win against West Germany after extra time.   Charlton did not win his first England cap until he was 29, in 1965, and played his 35th and final match for his country in the 1970 World Cup finals in Mexico in a group game against Czechoslovakia. A towering, uncompromising centre-half, he won the Football Writers’ Association’s Footballer of the Year award in 1967.   He announced his retirement as a player aged 38 soon after missing out on Leeds’ 1973 FA Cup final defeat to Sunderland through injury and was made an OBE the year after for his services to football.
    • Jack Charlton passed away today, aged 85. He'll be barking at St Peter for not opening the bloody gates despite his name being on the list.

    • My wife would love the away trips.    Mind you if she had her way it would be more Orient Express than Transalpino.    I hate the idea of a super league. I mean I don't feel in any way English, but I just like the traditional do well in your native league-qualify for Europe routine and then the trips especially when you get a team you haven't played before from somewhere in eastern europe. However, the level of knobheads knocking around the country  that came to the fore with their Liverpool void banter make me think fuck this I'm quite happy playing Barca this week and Bayern the next.   A lot to iron out though. Will footballers who play in the league be banned from playing for their national team. Also, will there be a means for clubs like say Celtic or Ajax to get into the league, or even other clubs from smaller countries. They probably need to have a 2nd super league to allow for promotion from the 1st division and allow a certain number of clubs come in. I would imagine there isn't a hope the Scottish Football Association let Celtic fuck off and play in it and then come back if they got relegated from it, let alone UEFA though.
