Football Transfers: Who have Liverpool signed so far?
After finishing runners up last season in the English Premier League, Liverpool have also managed to qualify for the prestigious club competition, Champions League. As the club would fighting for several titles next season, there is a serious need for the club to sign major players and increase their squad depth, which they seem to be working on.
Brendan Rodgers, the Liverpool manager has been making some smart moves buying young and proven players. Though, they might have let Luis Suarez go, but they are in the right path making some good signings. Let's look at the players who have joined Liverpool.

Rickie Lambert

The Southampton striker has been a childhood Liverpool supporter, as he also spent some time in the Liverpool youth academy, and has been excited to play for the club, which he dreamt years ago. Brendan Rodgers has gone against his own philosophy of signing young players by signing Lambert, who is more than 30 years old, but it is the technical ability and his intelligence, which made Brendan Rodgers go for the lanky striker. The player was signed for GBP 4 million.

Emre Can

Can has been brought in as a long term replacement for Steven Gerrard, who is in the twilight of his career, GBP 9.8 million. Can is said to be a talented player, who has been sold by Bayern Leverkusen after the reds activated the release contract. The player has a good physical built, which could suit the demands of Premier League. It is his relentless style of play, which could also be a big hit among the Liverpool fans.

Adam Lallana

After having enjoyed a splendid season with Southampton scoring goals and providing assists, Brendan Rodgers paid GBP 23 million for his services, hoping he would be a great player for Liverpool. His style of play suits Liverpool, who are a young team and deadly on the counter. Lallana, like Lambert has proved in the Premier League, hence could be a major signing for the reds. There are many who feel that the reds shelled out more money for the player than required, as there were several other players in the market, who was better and cheaper than Lallana.

Lazar Markovic

The Serbian forward has been a subject of interest for several teams from the English Premier League, but decided to snub even Chelsea to play for Brendan Rodgers' side. He is one of the hottest young talent in Europe, who if nurtured properly, has the potential to become a world class star. Markovic would look upon Brendan Rodgers to sharpen his skills and make him a star player, as he has done with the likes of Daniel Sturridge and Coutinho. He was signed for GBP 20 million.

Liverpool's wanted list

There are a number of players in Liverpool's wanted list, especially after the departure of Suarez, they are looking for a striker, who could bang in the goals. Brendan Rodgers seem to have been interested in Bony, but things have cooled of now and they have turned their attention to Loic Remy.

Apart from the mentioned signings, there is a serious need for Liverpool to have a solid defense, which was their major problem last season. Lovren as a central defender and Moreno as left back are the club's priority as of now.

As per reports, Liverpool are expected to sign four to five more players before the transfer window shuts down.
