Five down, four to go – why Liverpool are more than half-way to completing a perfect summer

The Reds have been blessed with a number of fine full-backs over the years, so while we’re all excited about the possibility of seeing Clyne in a Liverpool shirt – something which The Guardian thinks is a near certainty – it’s worth bearing in mind the quality which we’ll be hoping he can live up to.

10) Jason McAteer
An attacking full-back who could also play in midfield. He played exactly 100 Premier League games for us during the mid-1990s, prior to joining Blackburn Rovers. He recently set up both our goals in the Madrid Legends match.
9) Markus Babbel
