Liverpool ready £7.5m move for Salzburg ace

Salzburg star Takumi Minamino has a release clause of just £7.5m and Liverpool are planning a January raid, claims The Times.

Minamino's stock has soared this season following Salzburg's impressive displays in the Champions League.

Salzburg are bracing themselves for January bids for a number of players in January, including teen sensation Erling Haaland and forward Hwang Hee-chan.

Jurgen Klopp's interest in Minamino actually dates back prior to this season but Liverpool are ready to step up their pursuit following his eye-catching performances in Europe.

Naby Keita and Sadio Mane both had spells at Salzburg earlier in their career and Klopp believes Minamino can take a similar step in his career.

The Japan international was mostly used in an attacking midfield position in the Champions League group stage but can also play deeper and out wide. Follow us on Twitter and on Facebook
