Liverpool want to reunite Roberto Firmino with Hoffenheim team-mate – report

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp wants to sign Hoffenheim winger Kevin Volland, according to reports in Germany

Jurgen Klopp wants to reunite Liverpool forward Roberto Firmino with his Hoffenheim team-mate Kevin Volland, according to RNZ.

The Brazil international has been a big hit at Anfield this season after Firmino moved to Liverpool in a £29m deal from Hoffenheim last summer.

The 24-year-old has scored nine goals and has made eight assists in the Premier League, while the playmaker has helped the Reds reach the Europa League semi-finals.

And Klopp, who was appointed as Brendan Rodgers’s successor in October, is keen to reunite Firmino with Hoffenheim winger Volland in the summer transfer window.

The 23-year-old has been the Bundesliga club’s standout player in an otherwise difficult 2015/16 season.

Volland has scored eight goals and has made seven assists in 31 Bundesliga appearances so far this term.
