Takumi Minamino (born 16 January 1995) is a Japanese international footballer who plays as a forward for Liverpool, having signed from Red Bull Salzburg in 2020.

Liverpool careerEdit

Minamino first caught the eye of Liverpool fans in the Champions League Group stage, with the Japanese international putting in some very impressive performances, including a goal in a narrow Red Bull Salzburg defeat at Anfield.

After the group’s conclusion in December, it was reported that Liverpool were looking to agree a deal to sign Minamino from the Austrian side, having been scouted for a number of years.

On 19 December 2019, it was confirmed that Minamino would sign for Liverpool in the winter transfer window, with a £7,250,000 deal having been agreed with Salzburg. He signed a five-year deal, and was handed the number 18 shirt, recently vacated by Alberto Moreno.

Minamino officially signed for the club on 1 January 2020. He made his debut just four days later, starting and playing 70 minutes in the 1-0 victory over Everton in the FA Cup. He made his Premier League debut less than three weeks later, coming on as an early subsitute in a 2-1 win away to Wolves.
