Liverpool: Why Hoffenheim's Roberto Firmino Is Their Top Target

While Sturridge and Luis Suarez has taken up the brunt of the creative burden and chipped in with more than their fair share of goals, Liverpool can't rely solely on Brazilian playmaker Philippe Coutinho for back up...

Enter 1899 Hoffenheim trequartista Roberto Firmino, the man The Mirror are reporting is top of Liverpool's transfer targets. Impressive this season (13 goals and 8 assists in his 22 Bundesliga games so far) and one of the league's most underrated last, the 22-year-old Brazilian (how old do they have to be until they're not 'wonderkids' anymore?) is sure to make a move in the coming months and United should take advantage. Endlessly inventive, ruthless in hunting down defenders and a keen eye for goal, we think the playmaker would be a perfect addition to the side especially as he's also equally adept at functioning on either wing.

With industry bods Transfermarkt estimating that the player would cost around £11million, do you think Rodgers should stump up the cash for one of the hottest prospects in Europe? We think your answer should be a resounding yes.
