Official Announcement: Japanese Player Endo Embarks on a Fresh Journey with Liverpool
Breaking News: Liverpool Secures Signing of Wataru Endo from Stuttgart
Liverpool FC has officially announced the acquisition of midfielder Wataru Endo from Bundesliga team Stuttgart for a transfer fee of €20 million. Jurgen Klopp’s persistent search for a defensive midfielder has finally reached a successful conclusion with this signing.
Having already strengthened their midfield with the additions of Alexis Mac Allister and Dominik Szoboszlai, Liverpool targeted a more defensive-minded player, and the surprise addition of the Japanese international fulfills that objective. The deal was masterminded by Liverpool’s new German sporting director, Jorg Schmadtke.
Klopp expressed his delight at securing the experienced player, who served as captain for both Stuttgart and the Japanese national team. Endo’s fluency in English, great personality, strong work ethic, and exceptional football skills make him a valuable asset for the team. Klopp praised his attitude and confirmed that the 30-year-old is an excellent footballer who loves putting in tremendous effort on the pitch.
Endo successfully underwent medical tests on Thursday and officially signed a contract to represent Liverpool in the 2023/24 season. Former Stuttgart manager Sebastian Hoeness revealed that playing in the Premier League has long been a dream for Endo, and the opportunity to join Liverpool has allowed him to fulfill that dream.
Although Endo’s contract with Stuttgart was set to expire in June 2024, the club had hoped to extend his stay. However, they ultimately decided to let him go due to the favorable economic package offered by Liverpool. Losing their key player was not ideal for Stuttgart, but they recognized the significance of the opportunity for Endo to play in the Premier League.
Excitement is mounting among Liverpool fans as they eagerly await Endo’s debut in the iconic red shirt. Stay tuned for updates on this thrilling acquisition.
