Southampton have signed Liverpool striker Takumi Minamino on loan for the rest of the English Premier League (EPL) season 2020-21.
Liverpool made a temporary move to Japanese star Minamino today after Southampton allowed Shane Long to move to Championship club Bournemouth on loan.
Minamino has made 31 appearances and scored four goals for the EPL champions since arriving from Austrian giants Salzburg in January last year.
The 26-year-old has scored one goal in nine EPL games this season, and four in all competitions.
“I am very happy to welcome Takumi to our squad throughout the season,” said Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl.
“He will help provide another good attacking option, and what matters is the right player profile for us.
“This will give us extra depth in our squad at a crucial time, and I look forward to starting working with him on the training ground.”
Southampton are 11th, 11 points behind third-placed Liverpool.
