Liverpool have finalised deals for Tiago Ilori, Mamadou Sakho and Victor Moses.

The trio witnessed Liverpool's 1-0 win victory against Manchester United at Anfield and will be hoping to make a massive contribution to the Reds' push for the top four over the coming season and to help the club progress over the coming years.

Brendan Rodgers admitted he was in the market for defensive additions with the Anfield outfit light at centre back.

Daniel Agger is their newly-appointed vice-captain - an indication of his value to the club. Kolo Toure has played an important role so far this season, but is thought of as replacement for Carragher with his leadership and experience and might be thought of as a player to add depth, while Martin Skrtel's future the club is still unclear.

The young centre backs were clearly very happy with their move. Sakho said: "I came here because the project that is in place at Liverpool interests me. I'm really looking forward to playing my first game."

While Ilori added: "Liverpool have a great team and I think it's the place for me to be at the moment.

"There have been some great teams here in the past and the club has won a lot of trophies and I want to be a part of it."

The signings of Ilori and Sakho take the Reds' centre back count up to five. Ilori arrives for a fee believed to be in the region of £7million, while 23 year-old Sakho carries a heftier price-tag arriving for around £18million. Rodgers, also interested in improving his depth in wide areas, has signed Victor Moses on a season long loan from Chelsea.

The signings of Ilori, Sakho and Moses become Liverpool's 6th, 7th and 8th signing respectively. They join Belgian stopper Simon Mignolet, experienced Kolo Toure, long-standing target Aly Cissokho on loan and Spanish duo Luis Alberto and Iago Aspas.

While, taking Liverpool's spending this Summer past £45million. Speculation also suggests that Real Madrid might return for star striker Luis Suarez.
