DONE DEAL? Liverpool chiefs expect signing RB Salzburg ace Minamino Jan 1

Liverpool have been working on a deal for RB Salzburg attacker Takumi Minamino for much of this season.

The Liverpool Echo says this week at Melwood, on their return from securing a place in the knockout stages, there was one thing on the minds of a host of Liverpool's players - recruiting Minamino.

Indeed, senior stars urged their manager to recruit the man who had terrorised them throughout their 2-0 Champions League win in Salzburg.

But a deal was already well in advance, with Jurgen Klopp hungry to add the forward to his roster in the January transfer window and Liverpool increasingly confident that a deal will be agreed with the player.

Minamino is set to become a Liverpool player on January 1st, subject to passing a medical.

He is available for a bargain £7.25million due to a release clause in his current contract.
