Liverpool new boy Mamadou Sakho has set his sights on Champions League football after becoming the second deadline day signing at Anfield.

The 23-year-old centre-back has joined the Reds from Paris St Germain, with fellow defender Tiago Ilori having also signed on with Liverpool after completing his move from Sporting Lisbon.

And Sakho has big ambitions for this time on Merseyside, telling his new club's official website: "My aim while I am here is to play in the Champions League with Liverpool.

"I remember their teams when they were in the competition when I was younger. The Champions League is a tournament that all the great clubs in Europe participate in and that's where we need to get to.

"With the team we have, we are in a good position to get there. This is our objective."

Reds boss Brendan Rodgers had added five new players to his squad before the deadline day swoops, with Kolo Toure, Iago Aspas, Luis Alberto, Simon Mignolet and Aly Cissokho already on the books.

The Reds have also enjoyed a fine start to the new Premier League season, with a 1-0 Anfield win over Manchester United on Sunday taking them to the top of the Premier League table with nine points out of nine.
