Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher has claimed left-back Alberto Moreno has been Brendan Rodgers' best summer signing.

The Liverpool manager bolstered the squad with 11 new players in Moreno, Mario Balotelli, Adam Lallana, Rickie Lambert, Lazar Markovic, Emre Can, Dejan Lovren, Javier Manquillo, Lawrence Vigouroux, Kevin Stewart and Divock Origi (who remains on loan at Lille).

Rodgers earmarked the signing of Moreno as a top priority in the summer and after long weeks of negotiations with Sevilla, Liverpool agreed to pay around £12m to secure his services.

Moreno has since made an impressive start to the campaign at Anfield, scoring a fantastic solo goal during the 3-0 victory over Tottenham earlier in the season.

Carragher hailed his arrival and has said he is pleased with Moreno's performances.

"I really like Moreno, I think out of all the new signing, he is the one who looks the best. At the moment he is rotating with Enrique and against Tottenham he scored that goal, which was fantastic, so he looks good," Carragher said during an extensive interview with journalist Veronica Carralcazar.

Meanwhile, the Liverpool legend claimed that even though the Reds are struggling to cope with Luis Suarez's departure, the Uruguayan is not irreplaceable.

"People said that after Dalglish, after Rush after Robbie Fowler, after Michael Owen, after Torres so OK, Luis Suarez maybe difficult, maybe a long time, one of the best players in the world. But Liverpool have always replaced those strikers and you have to think that Liverpool will replace Suarez again," he said.

The former Liverpool defender recently called for Rodgers to drop striker Mario Balotelli from the starting line-up.

When asked about his swapping shirts with Pepe at half-time during the 3-0 Champions League to Real Madrid on Wednesday 22 October, he said: "Mario wasn't thinking about swapping shirts, but Pepe was.

"I think Mario should have waited until the end of the game or he should have swapped in the tunnel.

"He needs obviously start to scoring goals, he is not a replacement for Suarez really, but he plays in the same position. He is not as good a Suarez, we know that, but has to do a little bit more.

"Liverpool are missing [Daniel] Sturridge badly, because he gets the goals and if he is not there that's what you want from Balotelli really. But its still early in his Liverpool career, still plenty of time to go but he has to improve."
