Alberto Moreno is ready to challenge for a place in the Liverpool starting line-up straight away, but knows he still has more work to do to fulfil his vast potential, according to Brendan Rodgers.

The Spaniard sealed a switch to Merseyside from Sevilla by penning a long-term deal on Saturday to become the Reds' eighth signing of the summer so far.

Rodgers admits Liverpool have kept tabs on Moreno for a while and is confident the 22-year-old can stake his claim immediately.

The boss told "Alberto is a player with huge potential, but importantly he is also ready to come in and contribute straight away.

"He is quick, strong and serves the ball really well.

"We have monitored him in Spain for some time and every time I have seen him I have been greatly impressed.

"What is also important is that he is hungry to improve and recognises it is vital to keep learning."
