Published Add your comment

Liverpool expect to complete the signing of Italian left-back Andrea Dossena next week.

Chief executive Rick Parry has confirmed that a deal to take the 26-year-old Udinese player to Anfield is close to being finalised and he told the club´s website: "We are now ready to confirm the signing of Dossena. The deal should go through next week after finalising the paperwork."

Defender Dossena, who has been capped once at senior level by Italy, has been targeted as a replacement for John Arne Riise, who departed for Roma earlier this month.
