Liverpool Sell Takumi Minamino to AS Monaco
Minamino scored 14 goals in 55 appearances for Liverpool. He was their top scorer in domestic cup competitions last season. Minamino’s seven goals were crucial as Jurgen Klopp’s side won the FA Cup and League Cup.
But, he made 11 appearances, one start, in the Premier League for the club this season. They finished a point behind Manchester City who won the Premier League title. Minamino also played for Southampton on loan in February 2021. He made 10 appearances, before returning to Liverpool for the 2021-22 campaign.
His move is coming less than 24 hours after Senegal forward Sadio Mane joined Bayern Munich. Mane joined the German club Bayern Munich after the arrival of Darwin Nunez from Benfica for an initial £64m.
