SkySportshave reported thatLiverpool are in talks for the summer deal with Hoffenheim and Sevilla for Roberto Firmino and Carlos Bacca, respectively.
Liverpool who have been targeting Aston Villa Christian Benteke might be taking a step back from his pursuit as the fee demanded by the Villains is £32.5million which is way too high for the Belgian striker.
Brazilian media Globoesporte reported that the deal between Liverpool and Hoffenheim has been agreed, however the Sky Sources believe that it is yet to be agreed.
Firmino has been tipped to be an ideal replacement of Liverpool youngster Raheem Sterling who is keen to leave the club this summer.
While Liverpool are also keeping tabs on Carlo Bacca of Sevilla who is currently with his national side Colombia for the Copa America.
The reports believed that the fee around £20million has been offered for the Colombian striker who scored 28 last last season.
According to Spanish football pundit Guillem Balague, Bacca is keen to leave the Spanish club for a Premier League club. Sevilla are keen to keep him but the palyer has no plans to stay.
Balague told: “Carlos Bacca at the end of the season told Sevilla he would like a way out.”
Meanwhile, Liverpool are also targeting Zenit St Petersburg star José Salomón Rondón who will cost around £15million.
