Reds complete Alberto Moreno deal

ESPN FC's Stuart Holden, Paul Mariner and Alexi Lalas preview the upcoming season for the Reds and debate whether they can be title contenders.

Liverpool have completed the signing of Sevilla defender Alberto Moreno.

- Delaney: Dier grabs points on Tottenham debut

The 22-year-old left-back becomes Brendan Rodgers' eighth summer signing after a medical at the club's Melwood training ground.

However, Moreno -- who will cost the Merseysiders around 12 million pounds -- was not registered in time to play in Liverpool's Premier League opener against Southampton at Anfield on Sunday.

He told Liverpool's official website: "In my view, Liverpool are the best club in England, and I couldn't waste an opportunity to come and play for them.

"I spoke with Xabi Alonso, Pepe Reina and Alvaro Arbeloa, and they told me this is a spectacular club whose fans follow it in a very special way.

"They all told me I can grow a lot here as a footballer as this is a massive club. I'm very happy to be joining a club as big as Liverpool. I hope to give my best and do all I can to help."
