Andrea Dossena admits he is pleased to become the first Italian international to play for Liverpool.

The Udinese left-back will seal a £7m move to Anfield next week after undergoing a medical on Merseyside earlier this week.

Dossena’s agent Federico Pastorello admitted his client was happy to be joining Liverpool.

“I understand he is the first Italian international to play for Liverpool – a great opportunity for him and he is really happy,” Pastorello told skysports.com.

“He had his medical on Wednesday and we are just awaiting the formalities of that but we would think everything will be signed very shortly,” he continued.

“An agreement between the clubs was hard, but we all found it and everything is now ready.

“There were many teams interested in him,” Pastorello confirmed.

“He was the best left-back in Italy last year, arguably along with the boy [Juan]Vargas at Catania.

“So it was natural that there will be interest in the best left-back in Serie A, but to have the chance to work with a coach like Rafa Benitez was something he could not turn down.

“That was an important aspect of his decision and he cannot wait to get started.”
