The Reds have confirmed they've reached an agreement with Salzburg for the transfer of the 24-year-old Japanese international.

He's signed a four-and-a-half year deal at Anfield and will joined on January 1 when the transfer window opens.

Speaking to Liverpool's official website, he said: "It has been a dream, my dream to become a Liverpool player. And I'm so excited that the moment has come true.

"To play in the Premier League was one of my targets. I think this is the top-class league in the world; I was thinking if my career as a footballer progressed smoothly, someday I would be able to play in the Premier League.

"But I never thought I would be able to play in this team and I'm really happy about it. I'm looking forward to it."

Minamino has faced Liverpool twice this season in the Champions League. He scored when Liverpool met Salzburg at Anfield in October.

"From those games I learned this team has such a high level of technique and intensity," he added.

"Their football is of such a high level and I did feel that they were the champions of the Champions League. Feeling that, it makes me feel even happier that I can play in this team. I'm really happy to be part of that team.

"My target is to win the Premier League and the Champions League, and to make good contributions to the team."
