Liverpool have sealed their seventh signing of the summer following the arrival of Javier Manquillo on loan from Atletico Madrid.

The club are yet to confirm the length of the loan deal but reports suggest the 20-year-old right back has joined the Reds on a two-year deal.

He told the club's official website: "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."

Manquillo joins Rickie Lambert, Adam Lallana, Emre Can, Lazar Markovic, Dejan Lovren and Divock Origi in making the move to Merseyside following a summer of upheaval at the club.

His move to Anfield was virtually sealed last week when Atletico Madrid signed Argentine international Cristian Ansaldi on a season-loan from Russian champions Zenit St Petersburg. The full back will provide cover for both Juanfran and Guilherme Siqueira on both flanks at the Vicente Calderon. 

Manquillo is likely to be joined by fellow Spaniard and full back Alberto Moreno in the coming days. After initial negotiations with Sevilla broke down prior to the World Cup, Liverpool have reportedly agreed a fee of €20m (£15.9m) with the Andalusian club to see the 22-year-old left back return to Anfield.

Seville-based newspaper Estadio Deportivo suggests a deal is on the verge of being announced after fresh talks.

The addition of Manquillo and 22-year-old left back Moreno are Brendan Rodgers' latest attempts to reshape the defensive back line that recorded the worst goals against tally in the top five last season.
