Report: Southampton plotting mortgage transfer for Liverpool ahead Takumi Minamino
Southampton striker Takumi Minamino is looking to bring Liverpool striker Takumi Minamino to St. Mary’s on loan for the remainder of the season, according to The Athletic’s David Ornstein. The talks are at an advanced stage before today’s meeting at 11 p.m.
The Japanese has only played eight games for the Reds this season and is hoping for more opportunities to play with the Saints if a move works.
There is excitement in Southampton about the possibility of landing Minamino and it will be interesting to see how things play out in the hours to come.
The 26-year-old moved to Liverpool from Red Bull Salzburg in January 2020 after his £ 7.25m buyout clause was triggered. Under coach Jürgen Klopp, however, he fought for regular chances.
Southampton is currently in need of quality improvements amid the recent injury crisis and Minamino could help build his fortune on the pitch given his tremendous quality.
