Victor Moses has revealed Liverpool striker and his former Chelsea teammate Daniel Sturridge persuaded him to join the Merseyside club after the Blues winger completed his season-long loan move to Anfield.
The former Wigan Athletic man was one of the three players to join the Reds on the deadline day, with Brendan Rodgers strengthening his side's defence with the additions of Tiago Ilori and Mamadou Sakho to the squad.
"I spoke to Studge [Sturridge] and he wanted me to come here. He said I'd love it here but he didn't need to say much. The next morning, I had a word with my agent and told him it could be the right move for me," Moses told the Liverpool Echo.
"It's a massive club with great history. The club is doing well, so I wanted to come here and enjoy my football. I just want to come here, help my teammates however I can to try and get into the top four, and get as many games as I can at the same time," he added.
The 22-year-old and Sturridge were at Chelsea for the first half of the last season, before the England international completed his move to Anfield during the January transfer window. He has been in impressive form for the Reds since the start of the season, especially in the absence of Luis Suarez.
Sturridge has scored three goals in Liverpool's last three league games, which includes a winner during the Reds' 1-0 win over Manchester United at Anfield last weekend. Moses has hailed the striker's contribution for Rodgers' side as he eyes to mark his own impression during his loan spell at Anfield.
"Daniel is a great player and at the moment is probably the best striker in the Premier League. He's scoring goals, he's got good vision and enjoys his football out on the pitch. I just want to come here, help my teammates however I can to try and get into the top four, and get as many games as I can at the same time," the winger said.
"As a young footballer coming up, I just want to play games. Not playing games can really damage your career. Liverpool is a massive club and I just want to enjoy my football out on the pitch and try to help my teammates," Moses concluded.
