Roberto Firmino looks a very apt replacement for Raheem Sterling - with added defensive work, according to WhoScored's Martin Lawrence.
The deal is done. Roberto Firmino will become a Liverpool player this summer in a deal worth an initial 21million, which could see Raheem Sterling sold to Manchester City if they meet his 50million asking price.
WhoScored.com provide the lowdown on the playmaker, heavily linked with a move to Manchester United earlier in the summer, but now set for a transfer to Anfield.
Excited Liverpool fans will be able to watch the 23-year old this weekend as Brazil look to book a place in the final four of Copa America 2015 when they face Paraguay on Saturday night.
While the Selecao have disappointed so far, their progress to the quarter-finals owes much to Firmino, whose goal against Venezuela in the final match of group C proved decisive in avoiding humiliating exit from yet another major international competition.
