Pictures: All of Liverpool's summer signings ahead of 2015-16 season, from James Milner to Christian Benteke

Liverpool have made seven signings during a very busy summer transfer window.

Liverpool have been pretty busy during the summer in the transfer market as they look to put last season's poor showing in the Premier League behind them, and put something in a trophy cabinet that has been gathering dust for the past three seasons. 

So far seven players have signed for the Reds this summer - and here is a look at them: 

James Milner

Signed from Manchester City on a free transfer after a successful spell at the Etihad Stadium, where he won two Premier League titles, the FA Cup and the League Cup. Milner turned down a new contract offer from City to join Liverpool, with suggestions of regular game time in his preferred central midfield position. 

Danny Ings

Ings signed from Burnley with his contract expiring at Turf Moor - though Liverpool will have to pay a compensation fee set by a tribunal at later date if the two clubs can't agree a deal in the meantime. He scored 11 goals for the Clarets last season, more than any of Liverpool's forward options from last term, while playing for the league's lowest scorers.

Adam Bogdan

Another free transfer for the Reds, this time from Bolton Wanderers as they searched for a goalkeeper to provide cover, and potentially competition for Simon Mignolet. He may get opportunities in the cups and in the Europa League but he is hoping to push Mignolet for the starting spot on a regular basis. 

Joe Gomez

A signing befitting of the transfer policy undertaken by the club in recent years of signing a young talent and trying to develop him. Gomez signed for a reported £3.5 million fee and can play at either right-back and centre-back. Though he will be keen to make an impression on the first team, he may be playing second fiddle, though Brendan Rodgers has said the youngster will not be leaving on loan after an impressive pre-season.

Roberto Firmino

Arguably Liverpool's most exciting capture of the summer for £29 million from Hoffenheim, the Brazilian appears to be best mates with current Liverpool star Philippe Coutinho. Given that he's versatile, Liverpool fans may see him operate in a variety of positions including out wide, through the middle or even operating as the main striker. This is a signing brought in to help Liverpool improve in front of goal. 

Nathaniel Clyne

A man that has been signed to solve a position that has been a problem for the Reds over the years, and it's another player from Southampton - where Liverpool got three of their players during the transfer window last summer - for a fee of £12.5 million. The maligned Glen Johnson has left on a free transfer, Jon Flanagan has had rotten luck with injuries and Javier Manquillo has failed to convince. The Reds are hoping the 24-year-old will solve a problematic position for many years to come. 

Christian Benteke

Liverpool were desperate to bring in reinforcements to their forward line ahead of the new season given they suffered from a lack of goals during the last Premier League campaign. The 24-year-old was their man for an eye-watering fee of £32.5 million. He scored 49 goals in 101 games for Aston Villa so they seem to be getting a forward who has a good goalscoring rate for the side, but critics question whether he can really fit into the Liverpool side.
