New Liverpool signing Roberto Firmino has reported for training.


It won't be long until Liverpool fans get their first sights of new signing Roberto Firmino in action.

The club's marquee summer signing has reported back for training, pictured at Melwood for the very first time.

Firmino joined from German Bundesliga side Hoffenheim last month, after his eye catching performances convinced the Reds to splash out on his signature.

He was on international duty with Brazil at the time in the Copa America, a tournament eventually won by hosts Chile.

This involvement led to his delayed date to join up for pre-season action, and his teammates are currently on the other side of the world, playing international friendlies in Thailand and Australia, and set to play in Singapore next.

He is not likely to be alone at Melwood however, as controversial striker Mario Balotelli did not travel, and expected new signing Christian Benteke is waiting for his transfer from Aston Villa to go through.
