Minamino, 27, signed from Red Bull Salzburg in 2020 and played 55 times for Liverpool, scoring 14 times.

The forward spent the second half of the 2020/21 season on loan at Southampton, scoring twice in 10 Premier League games, before returning to Anfield last summer.

Minamino ended up featuring in 22 matches in all competitions to aid Liverpool’s ill-fated quadruple challenge last season, netting 10 times – including key goals in the club’s FA Cup and League Cup triumphs.

Jurgen Klopp has already brought in forwards Fabio Carvalho and Darwin Nunez – for a club-record £85m – this summer, with Sadio Mane departing for Bayern Munich in a deal worth up to £35m.
