Liverpool to use Takumi Minamino in Lucas Ocampos swap deal

Liverpool are reportedly ready to offload Takumi Minamino in the summer as they look to sign Sevilla attacker Lucas Ocampos.

While Ocampos has endured a mixed campaign at Sevilla this season, the 26-year-old remains on the radar of some of European football’s top clubs after his performances in the Europa League during 2020.

Liverpool have been strongly linked with a move for the Argentine playmaker as Jurgen Klopp looks to freshen up his squad at Anfield.

According to La Razon, the Merseyside giants are prepared to include out-of-favour Minamino in any proposal for Ocampos.

Despite impressing during the early weeks of his loan spell at Southampton, it is suggested that the Japanese is unlikely to reclaim a spot in Klopp’s plans going forward.

Minamino made just four starts in the Premier League during his first year at Liverpool.
