Liverpool could bank a big profit as they are “open” to selling Takumi Minamino.

Despite Jurgen Klopp having named Takumi Minamino as a “long-term project” in his loan move to Southampton, Liverpool are alleged to be “open” to talks over a sale.

Minamino’s mid-season move to St Mary’s came as a surprise, with the forward having already made 17 debuts for Liverpool in all competitions.

It has been a silent season on the south coast for the Japan international, with two goals coming in 10 trips for Saints, but Ralph Hasenhuttl has shown a wish to grasp his services.

That had been assumed to be temporary, but HampshireLive have now reported the likelihood of a permanent move away from Liverpool.

They claim the Reds are “open to letting [him] leave,” while Minamino is “open to a return to Southampton,” however he is yet to discuss his future with his parent club.

Minamino is currently with the Japan national team, having scored twice in their 10-0 win over Myanmar on Friday, with four more fixtures to come this month.

After that he will be awarded an extensive holiday, though talks could take place with Liverpool while he is on leave, to resolve his position before the commencement of pre-season.


Given the Reds paid just £7.25 million for Minamino at the start of 2020, and he is currently engaged up to 2024, it holds to reason that the club could hope to land a sizeable profit on their No. 18.

With a possible buyer already in place, it would not be out of the realm of chance that Liverpool could multiply their money on the 26-year-old.

This comes notwithstanding his modest start to life in the Premier League, with there being obvious potential in Minamino and an enthusiastic supporter in the shape of Hasenhuttl.

“He was a very lively factor in our game, in the games he played,” the Southampton manager said last month.

“He not only scored fantastic goals but his mentality and his character really fit into our team. You can see why a club like Liverpool wanted to sign him.

“He did a good job here. We gave him a chance to show up. We will have a look what happens in the summer, we will see what Liverpool want to do.

“There are discussions going on but we will have a look in the summer.”

Liverpool will be looking to move fringe players on to raise their transfer funds this summer, and it could be that Minamino is a more engaging asset than the likes of Harry Wilson and Divock Origi.
