Liverpool has given a confirmation that they’ve signed the Japanese attacking midfielder Takumi Minamino who previously played for the Australian Club Red Bull Salzburg.
The 24-year-old has cost The Reds who are currently the Premier League leaders a whooping £7.25 million.
Minamino impressed Liverpool in their two Champions League group matches this season with the Austrian side – he signed a four-and-a-half-year contract.
The soccer star who will proudly wear the No 18 shirt scored in the 4-3 defeat by Liverpool at Anfield in October said it was a dream come true.
“It has been a dream, my dream to become a Liverpool player. And I’m so excited that the moment has come true.
“To play in the Premier League was one of my targets. I think this is the top-class league in the world; I was thinking if my career as a footballer progressed smoothly, someday I would be able to play in the Premier League.
“But I never thought I would be able to play in this team and I’m really happy about it. I’m looking forward to it.” Minamino stated during his interview.
