Firmino wants England move

The agent of Hoffenheim forward Roberto Firmino confirmed that his client would be moving to England next season.

Roger Wittmann, who represents the 23-year-old, would not confirm where the striker's exact destination was - although he has recently been linked with a move to Manchester United.

"All I can say is that he's moving to England," Wittmann said. It may take a while before a deal is announced, though, since the Brazil international is current representing his country at the Copa America.

However, all of the formalities - including a medical - are likely to be completed while Firmino is in South America to enable him to complete what is likely to be a club record transfer for the Bundesliga outfit. Firmino is valued between €25m-€30m.
