Adrian says he is looking forward to competing with Alisson Becker for a starting spot in the Liverpool FC team.

The Reds signed the Spanish goalkeeper on a free transfer on Monday afternoon to bolster their options between the sticks.

The 32-year-old is the third arrival at the Champions League winners in the summer transfer window.

Adrian will be tasked with replacing Simon Mignolet after the Liverpool FC number two moved to Club Brugge on Monday.

The Spanish goalkeeper has spent the last six seasons at West Ham, racking up 150 appearances for the east London side.

Adrian will have a tough task to dislodge Alisson after the Brazilian goalkeeper finished with more clean sheets than any other Premier League goalkeeper last term.

Liverpool FC finished with the best defensive record after the Reds conceded 22 times in 38 games but the Merseyside outfit finished in second place behind Manchester City by a point.

But the new Liverpool FC signing is relishing his competition with Alisson for a starting spot.

“He’s a great goalkeeper, he’s doing very well,” Adrian told Liverpool FC’s website.

“His first season with Liverpool was magnificent. I come here to have a competition with him, a positive competition that helps us to improve.

“The competition makes us better and I’m looking forward to working with him and the goalkeeping staff.”

Liverpool FC have also signed 17-year-old Dutch defender Sepp van den Berg and Fulham teenager Harvey Elliott in the summer transfer window so far.

The Reds won the Champions League last season thanks to a 2-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur in the Madrid showpiece in June.
