Liverpool have confirmed the signing of Auxerre forward Djibril Cisse.
The 22-year-old France international has joined for a fee of around 14million and cannot wait to link up with England striker Michael Owen.
Cisse, who will wear the number nine shirt for the Reds, told the club's official website: "For me, it would be a pleasure to play alongside Michael
"Just to be with him in training would be great. I would love him to stay at Liverpool.
"With Owen, I feel we can do a good job. He is a great player and we are going to do good things."
Cisse scored 23 goals last season and his performances caught the eye of former manager Gerard Houllier.
Now he has to impress new coach Rafael Benitez, who was previously in charge of Valencia.
