Reports coming out from various English media outlets claim that the 24-year-old is on the verge of joining the European champions in the upcoming January transfer window have come true.
Liverpool have completied the transfer of highly-rated Red Bull Salzburg forward Takumi Minamino in the January transfer window.The Japanse striker is the first additon to the squad of manager Jurgen Klopp in 2020.
The 24-year-old’s age profile, his passing ability, and the fact that he has a release clause of just £7.5m made Minamino a perfect signing for the European champions.
Also, the fact that he hails from Japan will allow Jurgen Klopp’s side to increase their appeal in the Far East, a point which the Reds mooted during their recently concluded kit trial case against current suppliers New Balance.
Throw into the mix his availability to play in the knockout stages of this season’s Champions League, as UEFA changed its rules to remove the cup-tied clause, and Minamino will be able to reinforce Liverpool’s push for multiple trophies this season.
