Klopp has now shared his thoughts on Liverpool’s latest addition. The German tactician revealed they’ve been tracking the forward for a while now and is delighted to finally acquire his services. He told the club’s official website:

“I could not be happier that we’ve been able to get this deal done and bring Luis to Liverpool. I have always been a believer in only signing players in January if you would want to sign them in the summer, and that’s very much the case with Luis.

“He is an outstanding player and someone we’ve been tracking for a very long time.

“We believe he has everything needed to fit into our way and adapt to the Premier League, both physically and mentally.
