Liverpool have sealed the signing of Standard Liege forward Milan Jovanovic who will join the club on a free transfer in the summer.
The 28-year-old, nicknamed the Serbian Snake by Liege fans, was wanted by a number of clubs including Juventus, AC Milan and Valencia but opted to join The Reds saying he is delighted to be joining one of the biggest teams in Europe.
“We have reached an agreement for three years, with the option to extend for another season,” he told Belgian newspaper Sporza.
“I have yet to undergo a medical exam, but that shouldn’t be a problem.
“I don’t have any physical problems and I’m feeling perfectly fit.
“I opted to sign for Liverpool because they’re one of the biggest teams around in Europe. They’re definitely among the 10 biggest sides.
“I’m absolutely delighted that the deal is completed. From now on, I can focus on Standard Liege again. I want to leave the club in a good way.”
