Arsenal get another reminder of Roberto Firmino’s ability

The Hoffenheim forward netted for his side against Borussia Dortmund last night.

Arsenal are reportedly paying close attention to Roberto Firmino, with the Hoffenheim attacker a summer target for the Gunners according to Metro.

The Brazilian attacker has been starring for the modest Bundesliga side over the space of the last 18 months, and has broken into his national team also.

Arsene Wenger’s men were given a reminder of just how good the South American is last night, with Firmino scoring in his side’s DFB Pokal defeat to Borussia Dortmund.

As can be seen above, the 23-year-old capitalised on loose control by Neven Subotic to race through on goal, slotting home with a cool chip.

The strike gave Hoffenheim a 2-1 lead at Signal Iduna Park, but the hosts came back to win 3-2 after extra time.

Firmino seems destined for a move to a bigger club, with his recent performances justifying the reported interest in him from Arsenal.
