Liverpool defender Nathaniel Clyne has said his new club are aiming to win the Premier League title this season.
Clyne moved to Anfield from Southampton this summer in a deal worth £12.5 million and is excited about the clubs chances of success this season.
Liverpool failed to qualify for the Champions League last season, finishing sixth, and Clyne believes the Merseyside club are capable of challenging on all front this season, following a productive pre-season.

Speaking to the FA, he said: "With the squad that we have, I would like to think that we'll look to win every competition that we're in. Our aim has to be a title challenge and trying to make the final of one of the cup competitions, while doing as well as we can in the Europa League.
"My main objective for this season is to establish myself as a Liverpool player. If I can do that, hopefully I can be part of the England squad at next summer's Euros."
On paper Liverpool have made some strong signings this summer, with the likes of Christian Benteke, James Milner and Roberto Firmino coming in alongside Clyne.
It remains to be seen whether the new players will be able to gel quickly enough for Liverpool to have a strong start to the season but expectations are high that the club can battle their way back into Champions League contention.
It may be optimistic of Clyne to think Liverpool can challenge for the title but Liverpool fans will love to see that sort of optimism from one of their new additions.
Brendan Rodgers has been tasked with a rebuilding process following a disappointing campaign and the Liverpool squad looks to be much stronger than this time last year.
