The Brazilian has had an outstanding season in Germany, scoring 16 goals and picking up 11 assists in 33 matches last term, and Rodgers wants to push on with efforts to land the playmaker.

Liverpool chief Ian Ayre is set to fly out to Germany to meet Firmino ahead of a bid for the 22 year old with the Merseyside outfit ready to offer £15m though Hoffenheim are looking to secure £20m for the attacking midfielder.

Firmino can play in a number of roles from out wide in a central midfield role as well as up front and the Figueirense player may feel a high profile move to Liverpool could aid his push for a first Brazilian national team cap.

Rodgers may wish to boost his options in the final third with Liverpool not possessing all that many effective options beyond Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge and new signing Rickie Lambert.
