Lambert officially signed with Liverpool on Monday, the club's official web site reports.

Lambert moves over from Southampton, where he scored 117 goals in 235 appearances. It's difficult to see him scoring at such a high rate at Anfield, as Luis Suarez, Daniel Sturridge and Raheem Sterling will all presumably be above him on the depth chart.

Lambert appears close to a move to Liverpool that could be worth up to 4 million for Southampton, the Liverpool Echo reports.

Lambert is coming off a 13-goal, 10-assist season, making him one of only four players in the Premier League to reach double-digit totals in both categories (Steven Gerrard, Luis Suarez, Wayne Rooney). At 32 years old, he isn't likely on the cusp of a breakout campaign, especially with Luis Suarez, Daniel Sturridge and Raheem Sterling already on the the roster.

Lambert finished the 2013-2014 season with 13 goals and a team-high 10 assists in 37 appearances for Southampton.

Lambert led the Saints with 103 shots attempts (41 on goal) and his 13 goals ranked 11th among forwards in the category. Additionally, only Liverpool's Steven Gerrard and Luis Suarez topped Lambert's total of 10 helpers. As a result, the 32-year-old Lambert was recently named to England's World Cup squad and should be among the top options at striker in fantasy Premier League's next season.

Lambert came on for Adam Lallana in the 56th minute, scored a goal in the 57th and then assisted on Jay Rodriguez's goal in the 72nd minute during Southampton's 4-2 win over Norwich City on Saturday.

After scoring two goals and assisting on two others in the first two matches of February, Lambert was silent until Saturday's effort. It was the first time Lambert had not started since New Year's Day, and after that effort, he's unlikely to stay on the bench for long.
