Liverpool have completed the signing of Italian full-back Andrea Dossena from Udinese.
The left-back had been expected to make the move to Anfield for some time and after signing Swiss right-back Philipp Degen earlier today, Rafael Benitez has made his second acquisition of the day.
Like Degen, Dossena has signed a four-year deal.
Dossena, 26, replaces Norwegian John Arne Riise who left for Roma earlier this summer and joins for an undisclosed fee thought to be around £7million.
He has been capped once by Italy, in a friendly last year.
Degen earlier joined on a free transfer from Borussia Dortmund.
