Jan Molby believes Fabio Borini will prove to be a big hit at Anfield.
The Italian international yesterday became the first signing of the new Brendan Rodgers era, and the Great Dane is an admirer of the former AS Roma star.
"He's exactly the kind of player who will fit into the system Brendan wants to play," said Molby.
"Technically, Borini is very good, he has two good feet, his movement is excellent and he's a goalscorer.
"The manager has spoken about playing 4-3-3 and Borini could slot in anywhere along that front line.
"His mobility and work rate is ideally suited to the kind of football the new manager wants to see.
"He's a similar type of player to (Giuseppe) Rossi who has done very well at Villarreal after leaving Manchester United.
"There wasn't one Liverpool player who could be happy with their goal return last season. We desperately needed more options up front. We need to be more prolific this season and hopefully Borini will help us achieve that.
"Brendan has stuck his neck out for this kid and clearly has a lot of belief in him.
"I don't think the fact he didn't make it at Chelsea means a great deal.
"Borini was very young and he had the likes of Didier Drogba ahead of him in the pecking order.
"To be fair he could have signed another contract and stayed on the bench at Chelsea for another couple of years.
"But he decided not to hang around. He wanted to play and credit to him for that. He went back to Italy, did very well for Roma and got himself into the Italy squad for the Euros."
Having worked under Rodgers at the Liberty Stadium, Molby believes the new manager an get the best out of the Italian as he now prepares to wear a red shirt.
He added: "Brendan will know exactly what he's getting. He worked with him at Chelsea and must have been impressed by him to take him to Swansea.
"He did very well during that loan spell and his goals helped get Swansea into the Premier League.
"Brendan must feel there's more improvement in him and this is back to the old Liverpool mode of buying a player with potential.
"At Chelsea they ask their striker to play in a physical way but Liverpool will rely on his movement."
