    LONDON: Liverpool have signed Brazilian international forward Roberto Firmino, the Premier League club said on Wednesday, with the BBC reporting the fee would be £29 million (41 million euros, $46 million). The striker, currently on duty for Brazil in the Copa America in Chile, will join from Bundesliga club Hoffenheim. The BBC said that the contract was for five years and was the second highest ever paid by Liverpool after it shelled out £35 million for Andy Carroll in 2011. Firmino scored 47 goals in 151 appearances during his four and a half years in Germany.
