Jurgen Klopp was reportedly impressed by what he saw from the 24-year-old during the two matches Liverpool played against RB Salzburg in the group stages of this season’s Champions League.
Liverpool are ready to try and sign Takumi Minamino from Austrian outfit Red Bull Salzburg in the January transfer window, as per The Times.
The Japanese international impressed the Reds’ boss Jurgen Klopp during the two times he featured for his club against Liverpool in this season’s Champions League.
What is perhaps more interesting to note is that despite his brilliant performances in both domestic and European competitions this season, Minamino has a release clause of just £7.25 million.
The potential arrival of the Champions League-bound player at the Merseyside would no doubt help the reigning European champions reinforce their bid for the first Premier League title in almost 30 years.
