Liverpool have got themselves a bargain, as the 29-year-old England midfielder will add experience, work rate and versatility into the midfield void created by the departure of club icon Steven Gerrard.

DANNY INGS

(£6 million, from Burnley)

The 22-year-old will add strength and power to the Reds forward line but there are doubts whether he is the prolific striker Liverpool are crying out for.

The 27-year-old Hungarian is no more than a back-up to No.1 goalkeeper Simon Mignolet.

JOE GOMEZ

(£3.5 million, from Charlton)

The 18-year-old English centre-back is likened to a young Ledley King and is tipped to have a bright future. Likely to go out on loan straight away.

ROBERTO FIRMINO

(£29 million, from Hoffenheim)

The fleet-footed Brazilian favours playing as a No. 10, while roles as a wide forward or even deeper in midfield can also bring out the best in him. Boasts 23 goals and 21 assists after two seasons as a midfielder in the German top flight.
