Liverpool transfers Takumi Minamino to Monaco for €18 million

Liverpool is having an active summer as the Reds are balancing their market sphere so well.

Klopp’s side has agreed to sell Japan international Takumi Minamino to Monaco for 18 million euros (£15.5m).

Takumi Minamino was Liverpool’s top scorer in domestic cup competitions last season, scoring three goals in the FA Cup and four in the League Cup

Monaco was among a number of clubs interested in the 27-year-old who joined the Reds from Red Bull Salzburg in 2020.

The deal for Minamino is worth a fixed 15 million euros (£12.9m) and 3m euros (£2.6m) in add-ons.

He scored 14 times in 55 outings for the Reds. The striker managed to make just 11 appearances, including one start, in the Premier League as Liverpool finished a point behind Manchester City.

Minamino joined Southampton on loan in February 2021 and made 10 appearances, before returning to Liverpool for the 2021-22 campaign.

The exit follows the arrival of Uruguay striker Darwin Nunez from Benfica for an initial £64 million.

The Reds have also witnessed the arrival of forward, Fabio Carvalho from Fulham for £5m and 18-year-old full-back, Calvin Ramsay, from Aberdeen for £4.2m, with both deals potentially increasing with add-ons.
