Atletico Madrid are heavily tracking Hoffenheim forward Roberto Firmino, according to reports in the Spanish Press.

AS have claimed this morning that the capital club went to Germany to watch the Brazilian playmaker in action against Bayern Munich on November 2, and have been impressed with the 22-year-old.

The Bundesliga team rejected a €12m offer from Lokomotiv Moscow in the summer, but with the youngster’s contract ending in 2015, a similar bid could be accepted in January or next summer.
