Loads of Liverpool fans have been reacting to some impressive footage of Takumi Minamino, which shows him scoring a hat-trick for Red Bull Salzburg in the Europa League.
The Reds have agreed a £7.25m deal to sign the Japan international from the Austrian outfit in January.
As reported by The Athletic’s James Pearce, Borussia Mönchengladbach, AC Milan and Manchester United also wanted the versatile playmaker, and it’s not hard to see why when watching this footage.

The stunning hat-trick, of which the second goal shows off his incredible technique, came against Rosenborg in the group stages of the 2018-19 Europa League.
While the competition isn’t exactly the best, all three of the goals are well-taken, and he’s started this season in similar fantastic form, netting nine times and creating 11 goals for his teammates, per Transfermarkt.
You can find some of the best fan reactions down below, where fans are already starting on the crazy comparisons…
Very much in the Coutinho mould
