Liverpool have completed the signing of Alberto Moreno from Sevilla for £12 million.

Liverpool had agreed a deal with the Spanish club earlier in the week, and left-back Moreno had said he was "super motivated" over the move.

Moreno becomes the eighth player to join Liverpool this summer and took part in training for his new club on Friday.

"In my view, Liverpool are the best club in England and I couldn't waste an opportunity to come and play for them," Moreno told the club's official website.

"I spoke with Xabi Alonso, Pepe Reina and Alvaro Arbeloa and they told me this is a spectacular club whose fans follow it in a very special way.

"They all told me I can grow a lot here as a footballer as this is a massive club. I'm very happy to be joining a club as big as Liverpool. I hope to give my best and do all I can to help."

Manager Brendan Rodgers said: "Alberto is a player with huge potential, but importantly he is also ready to come in and contribute straight away.

"He is quick, strong and serves the ball really well.

"We have monitored him in Spain for some time and every time I have seen him I have been greatly impressed. What is also important is that he is hungry to improve and recognises it is vital to keep learning."
