Klavan told Sky Sport Italia: “I had offers from several teams, including in other countries, but Cagliari really wanted me.

“Darijo Srna advised me to come here, as I talked to him via Dejan Lovren. Other Liverpool teammates like Alisson, Salah and Lucas Leiva all spoke highly of Serie A.

“I’m certain we’ll do great things here and I am really fired up. The city is wonderful and so are the fans, I can’t wait to get started.”

Klavan joined Liverpool from Augsburg in 2016, but has made just 39 appearances for the Reds under Jurgen Klopp.

The German has been busy reshaping his squad over the summer, preparing for an expected assault on the Premier League title.
