Cape Town - Manchester United have "agreed a fee" with Bundesliga side Hoffenheim for Brazilian international Roberto Firmino, according to reports.

talkSPORT reports that the Red Devils have had their £13.1 million bid for Firmino accepted.

The Brazilian is currently on Copa America duty with some reports suggesting the player will undergo his medical during the tournament. 

The 23-year-old attacking midfielder has been a long term target. 

"He's been on United's radar for a long time, and they'll have been impressed by his ability to have a positive impact on games week-in week-out.

"If United get him for the figures being quoted, they'll have pulled off a big coup." says talkSPORT's Kevin Hatchard.

Firmino has three goals in six matches for Brazil.
