Liverpool target Takumi Minamino: All top players want to play in UK

RB Salzburg attacker Takumi Minamino has long wanted to play in the UK.

The Japan international is expected to join Liverpool in January.

“I'd love to play there [in Britain]," he said in 2018 after a Europa League tie with Celtic.

“It's one of the leagues that I've watched ever since I was a child and it's the league where all the top players play.

The way Celtic played, the supporters, the stadium and the atmosphere was pretty similar to the Premier League. It was such a good experience for me."
