Liverpool look set to beat off Man United and land Premier League bound stars signature

Liverpool are reportedly set to rival Manchester United for the signing of Brazil international Roberto Firmino, according to the Metro website.

Firmino is set to complete a switch to the Premier League this summer, with his agent Roger Wittman previously confirming that England will be his next destination.

United boss Louis Van Gaal was ready to swoop in and bring him to England, as he looked to bolster his attack.

However, Liverpool are now strong contenders for his signature. © 2017 Frontier Theme
