#mustread #PremierLeagueStories on Dec 24 2019 – How #Japan sensation #TakumiMinamino will fit #Liverpool ?
Minamino is set to officially become a Liverpool player on January 1st when the winter transfer window opens.
Jurgen Klopp said “We will see. All the things we know about Takumi fit very well to us. His football skills first and foremost. Decision making in tight areas. His speed and desire to win a ball back in counter-press, he’s used to that because Salzburg has a similar philosophy that we have. That’s all really good. But then we have to see: how will he adapt when he finally comes over and we are allowed to work with him? How can we put him in? But in the long term there’s no doubt that he will help us. That’s clear.”
Minamino will not be eligible to play in the home game against Sheffield United on January 2nd due to Premier League registration rules. But the 24-year-old could feature in the FA Cup clash against Everton three days later.
