Liverpool have confirmed Wataru Endo will wear the No. 3 shirt at Anfield after making the move from VfB Stuttgart.
Endo has joined the Merseysiders for a fee in the region of €19m (£16.2m), putting pen to paper on a four-year contract at Anfield.
Speaking as a Red for the first time, he told the Liverpool website: "I'm very happy right now and I'm so excited to join a big club in Liverpool.
"It feels amazing and this is my dream. It's always [been] a dream to play [in the] Premier League and with one of the biggest clubs in the world. It's a dream come true for me."
The Japan international also opened up on his preferred position, revealing he is more of a defensive player.
"I play as a No.6 and I'm like a bit more [of a] defensive player. I think I can help this club defensively and I will have good organisation in the middle. I think that's my job.
"I am very excited to join this club and I am looking forward to seeing you at Anfield!"
