Darwin Nunez was a high-profile signing for Liverpool this summer, but they are losing quality and depth in their attacking third.
Mane is expected to sign with Bayern, Origi will move to AC Milan, and Takumi Minamino is reportedly close to joining AS Monaco, according to the most recent reports.
The Athletic reports that the Reds and the Ligue 1 club have reached an agreement on a transfer fee of 18 million euros for the Japanese international during the summer transfer window.
According to the news source, Minamino and the French club have reached an agreement that will enable him to leave Liverpool.
The Asian playmaker excelled at Anfield in the Champions League back in 2019, and Klopp decided to entice him away from RB Salzburg (2020 winter transfer window).
The 27-year-old has mostly warmed the bench since moving to England, though. He only made one Premier League start in the previous season, which came in the second-to-last fixture versus Southampton.
Although Minamino was our top scorer in the Carabao Cup, Klopp did not even use him in the games. The 42-cap international was also our highest scorer in the FA Cup, but he wasn’t even included in the match day squad for the semis and final games.
Therefore, it is not surprising that the playmaker, who makes £75,000 per week (according to The Mirror), is leaving Liverpool. His departure would negatively affect the depth of the attack. The Japanese international can play in many offensive positions with success, just like Origi and Mane.
In order to improve the front line, Klopp should try to sign a versatile player. Who should the Reds sign to bolster the assault, in your opinion? Share your thoughts in the comments section below.
