Liverpool have signed goalkeeper Adrián on a free transfer.

The Spaniard left West Ham after six-years at the end of last season after his contract expired. He made 150 appearances for the Hammers throughout his time in London.

Speaking to the club's website, the goalkeeper said, “I’m feeling really happy, really happy to be here and to work in this great club and start doing my stuff on the pitch as soon as possible.

“I’m very ambitious, I come here to try to win everything, to try to push Alisson from the first minute and to make us better. Obviously, I want to win titles. I come here to fight for all the competitions.

"We have many competitions ahead – we’re going to fight for it and try to get them. I’m looking forward to playing my first game at Anfield and to win as many games as we can.”

He has been brought in as a replacement for Belgian goalkeeper Simon Mignolet who has left the club to join Club Brugge. Jurgen Klopp says Adrián is the perfect replacement

“I think this is the perfect solution for us in this moment, replacing talent and experience like for like," the 52-year-old German said. “With Alisson and Simon, I felt like we had two ‘No.1s’ and in many ways, we have repeated that with Adrian. This is important.

“He is a keeper who knows the Premier League, who has played in pressure situations and has the highest quality. They are big gloves to fill because Simon was such an outstanding professional and contributed to the group even when not in the starting XI.

"Everything we know about Adrián tells us he has the personal qualities to go with his clear playing talent to ensure this area of the team is not weakened. We’re all looking forward to working with him.”
