Signed for his then release fee of £7.25million (Sky Sports) from Red Bull Salzburg after impressing against the Reds in the 2019/20 UEFA Champions League group stages – Jurgen Klopp looked to have added a bargain to the squad.

Klopp has previously claimed there remains a role within his plans for Minamino – something the current noises from out of the club replicate.
