Steven Gerrard admits he’s excited by Liverpool’s summer transfer activity so far and is itching to line up alongside his new teammates as soon as possible.

The Reds have announced four signings already this summer, with Luis Alberto, Iago Aspas, Simon Mignolet and Kolo Toure agreeing to switches to Anfield.

Gerrard — who confirmed on Wednesday he expects to be fully fit and firing in time for the new season — has been pleased with the speed of Liverpool’s transfer business to date and believes supporters should be excited for 2013-14.

“Especially with the news of us making a few signings, I’m really looking forward to getting started,” Gerrard told LFC TV at his foundation’s charity golf day in Portugal.
