The Exact position Takumi Minamino will be playing for us - Jurgen Klopp reveals
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp believes Takumi Minamino’s versatility will be a major asset as he is now set to reinvigorating the Liverpool’s squad.

The Premier League leaders used their long-standing relationship with Red Bull Salzburg to steal a march on Manchester United and complete the signing of the Japan international earlier this week, ahead of the January transfer window officially opening.

After winning the Champions League last season, Klopp refrained from entering into the transfer market. His faith in his players has been rewarded with a record breaking start to the campaign which sees Liverpool currently enjoying a 10 point lead at the top of the table.

With Minamino available for a bargain £7.25million, however, Klopp admits swooping for the 24-year-old was too good an opportunity to ignore, especially given he is able to play across the forward line and potentially in an advanced midifeld position, as well.

He told ESPN FC: ‘It is a little bit not reshaping [the squad] but Taki is for sure a player who can help us immediately, in the short term, in the long term and from an age perspective.

‘He’s already really good as everyone could see when we played them in Salzburg but still  there is potential there to become even better, which is good.

‘You need always not only fresh legs because you play every three days, but you need fresh legs to keep everyone on their toes. That’s not a competition, it’s just to have different options in different moments

‘He’s a really exciting player and it was good we played them so each Liverpool supporter could see that’s a proper player.
