Adam Lallana impressed with Liverpool's new signings

Adam Lallana feels "optimistic" about Liverpool's season ahead due to the club's new arrivals.

Liverpool midfielder Adam Lallana has revealed that he feels "optimistic" about the season ahead following the club's recent recruitment in the transfer window.

The Merseyside outfit have acquired James Milner, Danny Ings, Adam Bogdan, Joe Gomez, Roberto Firmino and Lallana's former Southampton teammate Nathaniel Clyne so far this summer.

When asked by the club's official website if he thinks that business has been good, Lallana said: "Very good, especially getting James on a free. James has won the Premier League with Manchester City and I've played with him for a couple of years now on the international scene and he's a very talented player who will bring a lot to the club.

"Same with Danny Ings, I played against him twice last year and thought on both afternoons he played very well. He might be more for the future as well, he's only young, and I'm sure he'll come here wanting to improve.

"I feel really confident, really optimistic. I feel that the group of players that we've brought in and added to is only going to make everyone up their game. There's going to be good competition for places, which I think is healthy in a good team. I'm just looking forward to getting going now."

Liverpool are preparing for a pre-season tour to the Far East and Australia this month.
