Liverpool have completed the signing of Udinese defender Andrea Dossena on a four-year deal.
The Italian full-back becomes Reds manager Rafa Benitez's second signing of the summer following the arrival of Swiss international Philipp Degen on Thursday.
The left-back will compete with Fabio Aurelio for a place in Liverpool's first XI and is viewed as a replacement for John Arne Riise, who recently moved to Roma.
Reports suggest that the 26-year-old has cost Liverpool a fee in the region of £7million.
Dossena, who has one international cap, played 63 games for Udinese and scored two goals.
