Samuel Eto'o was undergoing a medical with Liverpool on Friday afternoon ahead of signing a one-year deal
The 33-year-old was subjected to late interest from Liverpool's Merseyside rivals Everton, but Roberto Martinez could not do enough to keep Eto'o away from Anfield's clutches.

The Cameroon veteran will join on a free transfer after Jose Mourinho decided against offering him the chance to stay at Chelsea for a second season.
