Monaco are leading the race to sign Liverpool’s attacking midfielder Takumi Minamino 

The 27-year-old is surplus to requirements at Anfield despite playing a key role in the their FA Cup and League Cup glory last season as the club’s top goalscorer in domestic cup competitions with seven.

He made just 11 appearances in the Premier League – scoring three goals in the process – for Jurgen Klopp’s side in 2021-22.

Minamino is therefore likely to leave Anfield in search of more regular game time.

‘It is incredibly hard for him and for me as well because it is really tough these kind of things,’ Klopp said. ‘Taki is in an incredible moment.’

Minamino joined Liverpool from Red Bull Salzburg in a £7.25m deal ahead of the January transfer window in 2019.

Having seen little game time too in 2020-21, he headed out on loan to Southampton for the second half of last season and made 10 appearances before returning to Anfield.
