Reports are out claiming that Manchester City are believed to be the frontrunners to sign Roberto Firmino from Hoffenheim.
The Daily Mail reports that last season’s Premier League champions have held talks with the Brazilian’s representatives making them the favourites to land him ahead of Manchester United and Arsenal.
23-year old attacking midfielder Firmino has been linked with City for some time and it is believed that the club are poised to make a £20million bid for his services.
Firmino joined Hoffenheim from Figueirense in 2011 and has since made 150 appearances for the German club. He is contracted until the summer of 2017.
