Cape Town - Brazilian international Roberto Firmino has set his sights on celebrating a lot of success with the Merseyside giants.

The 23-year-old forward sealed a move from Hoffenheim to Liverpool during Brazil's unsuccessful Copa America campaign last month and is looking forward to life in the Premier League.

"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 Hoffenheim's official website.

"Of course everything will once again be new to 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.”

The talented Brazilian scored 49 goals in 153 appearances during his five seasons with Hoffenheim.

Liverpool have made six summer additions as Rodgers looks to challenge for the Premier League next season. The new recruits are Firmino, James Milner, Danny Ings, Joe Gomez, Adam Bogdan and Nathaniel Clyne.
