Ragnar Klavan: unveiled at Liverpool after signing a three-year deal

Liverpool have signed defender Ragnar Klavan on a three-year deal for 5m euros (£4.2m) plus add-ons from German club Augsburg.

The Estonia captain, 30, has 112 caps for his country and made more than 100 times for Augsburg after arriving from Dutch club AZ in 2012.

“It’s hard to put it into words, because it’s been a dream of mine for 22 years to come to the Premier League and be a part of this amazing club, Liverpool,” he told the club’s website.

“The Premier League is the most attractive league in the world and you always have amazing players here. This is the home of football.”

Klavan becomes the fifth new face added to Jürgen Klopp’s squad this summer so far following Loris Karius, Joel Matip, Sadio Mane and Marko Grujic.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp had wanted to strengthen his central defensive options after Kolo Toure was released and Martin Skrtel sold to Fenerbahce.

Frenchman Mamadou Sakho is also expected to miss the start of the season with an Achilles tendon injury.

Klopp has already signed Mainz goalkeeper Loris Karius, Schalke centre-back Joel Matip, Red Star Belgrade midfielder Marko Grujic and Southampton forward Sadio Mane this summer.
