Takumi Minamino wrapped up a transfer to Liverpool by completing a medical and signing a long-term contract at Melwood on Wednesday - and our photographer was with the Japan international to capture the moments.

The Reds have agreed a deal with Red Bull Salzburg for the 24-year-old, scorer of 64 goals in 199 appearances for the Austrian side, who will take the No.18 shirt.

We followed Minamino throughout the day as he undertook medical examinations, got a first look at the training ground, penned his contract, conducted a photoshoot and met one of his new teammates.

Take a look at day one in our gallery below...
