The Brazilian has stated that he is looking forward to playing in the Premier League and is eager to be successful at Anfield.

Roberto Firmino has stated that he has moved to Liverpool in order to celebrate a lot of success, as per the Hoffenheim official website.

The Brazil international has agreed a deal to move to Anfield this summer, with the skilful attacker seen as a player to have the Reds challenging for the top four again next season.

Firmino leaves the Bundesliga outfit after three years in Germany but has admitted that he is looking forward to playing in the Premier League.

He also stated that his first ambition is to claim a regular starting berth for Brendan Rodgers’ men.

“First and foremost I’m looking forward to the new challenge and I’m excited to see what the Premier League has to offer,” he told the Hoffenheim site.

“Of course everything will once again be new me at the start – I’m going to have to get used to a new playing style, but I’ll also get the opportunity to improve my game even further there.

“Obviously I’d like to establish myself as a starter in my new team and go on to celebrate a lot of success at Liverpool.”

Liverpool have moved quickly to bolster Rodgers’ squad this summer, with a host of new faces arriving at the Merseyside club ahead of the 2015-16 campaign.

Firmino has been playing for Brazil in the Copa America, but struggled to find his best form as the Selecao were eliminated by Paraguay at the quarter-finals stage.

The new man will compete with the likes of Raheem Sterling, Adam Lallana, Lazar Markovic and compatriot Philippe Coutinho for an attacking midfield berth in the Reds’ starting XI.
