Leeds: Transfer expert talks up Takumi Minamino links

Leeds: Transfer expert talks up Takumi Minamino links -Follow up

Liverpool forward Takumi Minamino could be a ‘really intriguing’ potential signing by Leeds United this summer, according to transfer insider Dean Jones.

The Lowdown: Leeds linked with Minamino

Leeds secured their Premier League status after a dramatic 2-1 win away to Brentford last weekend, so the focus can now turn to new signings in the summer.

One player with whom the Whites have been linked is Minamino, with the Japan international potentially leaving Liverpool after this weekend’s Champions League final and reportedly keen on departing the Reds.

The 27-year-old has struggled for game-time this season, with Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, Luis Diaz, Diogo Jota and Roberto Firmino all ahead of him in the pecking order at Anfield.

The Latest: Minamno could be ‘nice fit’ for Leeds

Jones believes that Minamino could be a shrewd signing by Leeds if they can lure him to Elland Road over the summer.

The journalist told GiveMeSport:

“I think he’s a really nice fit, actually. Minamino is not a bad player at all, he’s just been a victim of Liverpool’s success in a way. He just hasn’t been as good as Jota and Diaz when they’ve come in.

“We saw him against Southampton, what he can still do. I think that Jesse Marsch has a philosophy that Minamino fits in well with. He works hard, he follows orders. It could be a really intriguing one.”

Should Leeds sell Harrison?

Yes, time to move on!

The Verdict: Exciting summer target

Minamino could be a perfect option for Jesse Marsch to bring in this summer, possessing the qualities required to be a success in this Leeds team. He is hard-working and capable of playing across several positions, whether that is in a central or attacking midfield role, or anywhere across the front line.

Furthermore, the 27-year-old has showcased his goalscoring prowess this season, finding the net 10 times in all competitions despite playing just over 1,000 minutes in total and being hailed by his manager Jurgen Klopp as a ‘complete’ player.

He could immediately take Leeds up a gear in the attacking third if they can sign him from Liverpool, so they should make every effort to try and make this move happen.
