Jurgen Klopp has taken no time at all to make his mark at Liverpool where transfers are concerned.

The German's first full summer in charge is currently underway and following a season where his side showed much promise but ultimately failed to deliver, a number of big changes have already been made.

Georginio Wijnaldum become Klopp's fourth summer signing on Friday afternoon for a reported £25 million, following in the footsteps of Sadio Mane, Loris Karius and Joel Matip.

Many questioned where exactly the Netherlands international will fit in at Liverpool given the sheer amount of attacking talent present, but at such a steep price, you would assume Klopp has his reasons.

Nevertheless, Wijnaldum has now reacted to his 'dream' move on Instagram and what he has to say will undoubtedly excite fans.

"PROUD AND EXCITED"

In the attached caption, he said: "To my new Liverpool family. I want to say how proud and excited I am to join this great football club here in this amazing city.

"The supporters at my former team Newcastle [United] were incredible, now I am looking forward to playing in front of fans whose passion for the game is famous around the world.

"I am aware of the history and tradition of this club and the legends who have gone before me in the red shirt.

"I make a promise to you the fans, the owners and my teammates and new manager to always give everything within me to honour the great tradition of this club and by doing so win trophies that we can celebrate together.

"Big love to all my new Red family both here and around the world. Georginio #5"

Class. Klopp has also commented on Wijnaldum's arrival and appeared equally excited.

He told Liverpool's official website: "I am so happy that we have got him and he can join us now in the USA.

"I think he can be a great player for us. He has already shown some really good moments in his career but the most exciting and important thing for me and my staff is that there is still so much extra to come from him.

"When I talked to him I could tell that he knows we have to work together to get this level out of him to all be successful for the team.

"He has played a lot for his country already, been captain at a young age in Holland and also been involved in a tough Premier League season so this experience gives him a good foundation for the challenge here - which everybody knows is huge!

"He can play a few positions for us and players that come through the Dutch system usually have a good tactical understanding and flexibility. That's really important.

"I can't wait to get him on the training pitch and for the fans to see him play in a Liverpool shirt."
