Sadio Mane has completed his £30million move to Liverpool from Southampton.
The forward travelled up to Merseyside on Monday to undergo a medical and thrash out personal terms with chief executive Ian Ayre.
Those formalities went through without a hitch and Mane penned a five-year contract with the Reds and will wear the No 19 shirt.
Mane becomes the club's third most expensive signing of all time, behind Andy Carroll and Christian Benteke. The fee could have flown beyond Carroll's £35m from Newcastle after Southampton initially asked for £40m.
Klopp believes Mane has the pace, energy and aggression to give Liverpool's attack a different dimension.
Southampton will have received £91.5million in transfer fees from Liverpool over the last three summers with Mane following Adam Lallana (£25m), Dejan Lovren (£20m), Nathaniel Clyne (£12.5m) and Rickie Lambert (£4m) from the south coast.
