Fulham are the latest Premier League club to manifest an interest in Takumi Minamino, with Jurgen Klopps requesting 17 million for the Japanese international, according to the Daily Mail.
For Minamino at Anfield, it''s like a case of the right person at the wrong time.
The former Red Bull Salzburg star might have established himself as one of the first names on the Liverpool team sheet long ago. Unfortunately, his arrival on the banks of the Mersey came at a time in which arguably the most fearful front three in world football were still at the peak of their powers.
Since then, Liverpool have added Diogo Jota and Luis Diaz to their ranks. As a result, Minamino added another silver medal to their collection in 2021/22. A victim of Liverpool''s success, you may argue.
Despite the uncertainty surrounding Salah''s future as well as the wantaway Mane, The Mail believes Minamino intends to leave Anfield in search of more regular first-team football elsewhere. Fulham is certainly well-promoted.
In an unusual twist of fate, the 27-year-old would fill a Fabio Carvalho-shaped hole in Fulham''s free-flowing attack. Recently, Carvalho swapped Craven Cottage for Liverpool.
He looked exceptionally sharp and showed all of the things he knows about him. A complete performance. According to Klopp, Minamino put his side on a low pace with two goals in his FA Cup win over Norwich City.
Minamino provided more goals (10) than he did last season in all competitions (nine, in every competition).
Klopp adds that his character is top-class. He was smart, quick, and technically he was exceptional. All of the time, the result is great.
The Mail believes that a goal-shy Wolves are keen as well. Only Norwich, Watford, and Burnley scored fewer Premier League goals than Bruno Lages'' last term. Leeds United are long-time admirers, while Southampton might offer their previous loan star another spell at St Marys.
