LIVERPOOL, July 20: Liverpool have signed defender Ragnar Klavan on a three-year deal for £4.2m plus add ons from German club Augsburg.

The Estonia captain  Klavan has 112 caps for his country and made more than 100 times for Augsburg after arriving from Dutch club AZ in 2012.

The 30-year-old is the Reds' fourth signing of the summer.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp had wanted to strengthen his central defensive options after Kolo Toure was released and Martin Skrtel sold to Fenerbahce.

Frenchman Mamadou Sakho is also expected to miss the start of the season with an Achilles tendon injury.

Mainz goalkeeper Loris Karius, Schalke centre-back Joel Matip and Southampton forward Sadio Mane are the other  additions Liverpool   have made this summer.
