Other defensive signings

Liverpool have already strengthened their depth in defence signing two new defenders this transfer window in Dejan Lovren and Javier Manquillo. Both these signings impressed on their debuts for the club against Borussia Dortmund at Anfield.

Lovren, who Liverpool bought in from Southampton for £20 million, was solid in defence and ran the centre of the Reds defence well when coming up against the Dortmund attack.

Signs of settling in

He seems to have linked well with the Reds attack already, attempting some very impressive long through balls over the top for the Reds forwards to attack.

Manquillo had an equally impressive debut, making some important tackles in defence. He also got forward well when Liverpool were attacking making some impressive passes and runs up and down the wing.

Liverpool agree Moreno deal

A statement was put up in the Reds website confirming that they and agreed a deal "in principle" for the Spanish full-back. Moreno has played 44 games for Seville in La Liga, scoring three goals.

Moreno was a member of the youth academy at Seville and rose up through the ranks and broke into the first team in 2012. From 2011-2012 Moreno played for Seville's B team, making 49 appearances in the league and scoring 6 goals.

The Spaniard will bring some cover and depth to Brendan Rodgers' defence as he looks to make a decent assault on the Premier League title as well as make it far in the Campions League.
