Manchester United have apparently agreed a £13.1million fee for Hoffenheim and Brazil midfielder Roberto Firmino, according to reports.

Firmino, 23, is currently part of the Brazil Copa America squad and starred for Hoffenheim in the Bundesliga last season, where the attacking midfielder scored 10 goals and added 12 assists.

According to talkSPORT, a fee has been agreed after Firmino told Hoffenheim he wanted to leave - the club failed to qualify for the Europa League this season.

Firmino has just six caps for Brazil but already has three goals.

It is unclear where he would fit in at Manchester United, who already have Juan Mata, Ashley Young, Angel Di Maria, Adnan Januzaj and new signing Memphis Depay in the attacking midfield position.
