"It was an incredible day for me", Keita, 23, told Liverpool's website.

Keita, who will become the first Liverpool player since Steven Gerrard to wear the number 8, said that he is looking forward to playing behind Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane in the Reds squad.

"I actually think they've got to get better support".

Keita was best friends with Liverpool's Sadio Mane - the pair share the same agent - when they were together at Red Bull Salzburg and he believes when the Senegal worldwide returns from World Cup duty he will help him settle in.

"Firstly I am somebody that plays in a defensive role and we need to start with that", the midfielder who's style of play has often drawn comparisons to N'Golo Kante told LFC TV. It gave me the motivation to be with the team and try to find my place within the team.

But with the players they have and Jurgen Klopp as manager, there's a sense that the Reds have so much more to give.

With Durant, George and Paul off the board, James is the biggest name left to decide his intentions when it comes to free agency. This is the third time in eight years that James has changed teams via free agency.

"He is like family to me".

Oxlade-Chamberlain joined Liverpool last summer from Arsenal and is now recovering from a knee ligament damage.

Keita responded in a similarly friendly manner, asking the former Arsenal star how he was, to which Chamberlain continued: "Yeah not bad".

And he used his injury to break the ice with Keita in a rather touching moment between the two, which you can watch below. "He is somebody who always showed respect, who gave his all on the pitch, somebody who is loved here".

"How you doing bro, you okay?" said the Ox. You OK? Nice to meet you. Not as good as you, but I'm OK.

Class. Liverpool fans have been reacting to Oxlade-Chamberlain and Keita meeting for the first time and it's safe to say they're loving what they saw.
