Barred by competition in Liverpool, Takumi Minamino could well be OL’s star recruit this summer.
Despite the failure of Xherdan Shaqiri’s transfer last season, Olympique Lyonnais are ready to return to the Liverpool side for their summer transfer window. According to information from Times this Thursday, the Rhone club is closely monitoring the situation of Takumi Minamino. Placed on the list of “undesirables” by Jürgen Klopp, the Japanese should leave the Reds this summer and there will be no shortage of suitors.
The 27-year-old striker, whose price is estimated between 15 and 20 million euros, also appeals to AS Monaco. Takumi Minamino’s agents are also in discussions with the leaders of the two Ligue 1 teams to study the feasibility of a transfer. It remains to be seen who will have the last word, while other Premier League and La Liga teams could interfere in the operation. A delicate transfer in perspective while the Principality club seems to be the big favorite in this case.
