Liverpool chief Ayre on way to Hoffenheim for Firmino talks

Liverpool are eyeing Hoffenheim attacker Roberto Firmino. The Sunday Express says CEO Ian Ayre will fly to Germany next week in a bid to trash out a deal with the Bundesliga club for the £20m rated Firmino.

The 22-year-old Brazilian attacking midfielder fits the bill for Brendan Rodgers as he can fill a number of attacking positions.

He emerged last season as one of the Bundesliga's stars scoring 16 goals and claiming 12 assists as he helped Markus Gisdol's side to ninth place.
