Leeds United: Whites handed Takumi Minamino boost

Leeds United: Whites handed Takumi Minamino boost -Leeds United News

Leeds United appear to have been handed a boost in their pursuit of Liverpool forward Takumi Minamino, as his club are now green lighting a summer exit.

The lowdown: Marsch’s Old Boys

Leeds boss Jesse Marsch has already been reunited with Brenden Aaronson and Rasmus Kristensen from Red Bull Salzburg.

Also linked with a move for exciting young attacker Junior Adamu in recent days, the 48-year old-coach appears to be determined to bring as many of his tried and trusted players to Yorkshire as possible.

Now, after Leeds were previously credited with an interest in Minamino, it seems as though Marsch could well be about to make a swoop for yet another Red Bull alum.

The latest: Liverpool open to sale

As per Lynch for TIA, Leeds are among the clubs keen to land the Japan international this summer and the Reds are now ‘willing’ to sanction a departure for their domestic cup hero.

It’s claimed that Wolves, Southampton, AS Monaco and newly promoted Fulham are also interested in the 27-year-old, who provided a staggering 20 direct goal involvements in just 22 outings under Marsch in Austria before heading to the Premier League.

The report also states that Liverpool will demand a fee in the region of £17million for the man praised for ‘outstanding’ UEFA Champions League outings by Liverpool journalist Jack Sear.

The verdict: Make it happen

Equally adept on either wing as well as in central positions, Minamino boasts wide ranging versatility that would be welcomed to the Elland Road squad by Marsch.

Despite rarely stealing the limelight in the Premier League or Champions League for Liverpool, the 40-cap Japan star was the man of the moment in the domestic cups last term as he ended the season with ten goals and one assist from 24 outings across all competitions, most notably notching four strikes in five Carabao Cup appearances.

With Leeds somewhat at loggerheads with their own attacking phenomenon Raphinha, adding Minamino to the fold for the mooted fee would be a sensational piece of business, particularly given the forward’s previous performances for Marsch.
