Speaking as the move was being finalised last night, Steven Gerrard said: “He’s the type of player we’ve been looking for. Last year at times I didn’t feel we had enough in the final third in certain areas.
“The idea this year was to build a squad with exciting players who can open the door in different ways.
“Jordan Jones and Brandon Barker open the door in one-v-one situations then provide crosses or cut in to score goals.
“Sheyi Ojo does the same with raw pace and power, Greg Stewart does it in a clever way while Scott Arfield does it by his running.
“I wanted to have everything in our repertoire so that we have enough answers in the final third.”
