Liverpool newcomer Luis Diaz has finally linked up with his new club.
The Reds snapped up the Colombia international last Sunday from Porto for an initial £37million.
Diaz, a long-term target for Klopp, has penned a five-and-a-half year contract at Anfield.
The 25-year-old has been in South America representing Colombia over the past week.
On Friday, the Liverpool media team filmed him arriving at Kirkby.
And Reds boss Jurgen Klopp welcomed Diaz to his new club with a trademark hug.
Klopp is well known for the big hugs he tends to give players at the final whistle.
Diaz also exchanged some words with Liverpool assistant Pep Lijnders.
“He is an exceptional player”
Speaking ahead of Sunday’s FA Cup clash with Cardiff, Klopp expressed how much he was relishing the opportunity to work with Diaz.
“We signed him because we like pretty much everything about him, that is how it is,” Klopp told his press conference on Friday, via Sky Sports.
“I have followed him now for a while, not only since we played them [Porto] twice in the Champions League.
He is an exceptional player. He has the speed, the skillset, the character to have a really good career. We all want him to have this career with us.
“Nowadays you have 16, 17-year-old boys playing at the highest level, maybe he is a bit of a late bloomer, but the bloom is exceptional.
“I am really happy that we could get him in now and we can help him, and he can help us. His story is a special one, I like players with special stories behind them.
“Now he is one of us and we can’t wait to welcome him here and start working together.”
