Liverpool signed Japan midfielder Wataru Endo on a long-term contract. British media outlets, including Sky Sports, valued the 30-year-old's move from Bundesliga club Stuttgart at 19 million pounds ($24 million, 22 million euros). The Reds have been on the hunt for a defensive midfielder since both captain Jordan Henderson and Fabinho made the move to Saudi Arabia during the ongoing transfer window.

Liverpool's attempts to sign Brighton's Moises Caicedo and Southampton's Romeo Lavia failed. Both players have joined their Premier League rivals Chelsea.
