Liverpool are set to complete a deal for Estonia captain Ragnar Klavan – and fans took Twitter to share their delight at Jurgen Klopp’s impending fifth signing of the summer.

It is said a deal worth £5million will be completed early this week, with the defender signing an initial two-year contract with an option for a third.

Centre-back Klavan has impressed in the Bundesliga since joining Augsburg from AZ Alkmaar in 2012.

Klavan has more than 100 caps for his country, and at 30, has the knowledge and maturity manager Jurgen Klopp is looking for to replace veteran duo Martin Skrtel and Kolo Toure, who have left in the last month

Joel Matip also limped out of Liverpool’s 2-0 pre-season win over Wigan on Sunday with an ankle problem that Liverpool will hope is only a minor one.

Upon hearing news of the transfer revelation, fans took to Twitter to share their hopes, knowledge and dreams for the centre-back’s time at Anfield… alongside one or two sceptics.
