Liverpool have announced their seventh signing of the summer, with 20-year-old full back Javier Manquillo completing a two year loan move to Anfield from Atletico Madrid.

The Spaniard has an option to make the move permanent at the end of the spell, for a fee believed to be in the region of £5million.

Manquillo is the seventh player to join the Reds this summer, with deals for Rickie Lambert, Adam Lallana, Emre Can, Lazar Markovic, Dejan Lovren and Divock Origi already completed.

Manquillo told Liverpoolfc.com: “I’m very happy to have signed for a club like Liverpool. I think it’s one of the biggest in Europe. Any footballer would want to come and play here.

“When they tell you Liverpool want to sign you, I think like any player, you are going to be absolutely amazed and you don’t think of anything else than going straight there.

“It’s a team that nowadays, as I said before, any player would want to be a part of.”
