“Brilliant addition and amazing deal” – Liverpool fans react to news of Minamino deal

Takumi Minamino is on the verge of joining Liverpool in January and supporters have been left delighted with the news.

The Reds are reported in to have agreed a deal in principle for the Salzburg attacking midfielder.

The versatile Japanese player caught the eye during both Champions League group stage matches against Liverpool, cutting a silky figure in the final third and earning praise from Jurgen Klopp in his post-match press conferences.

His performance at Anfield was so good than many fans felt it was one of the best by an opposition player in years.
