Liverpool & # 39; is NOT interested in Kylian Mbappe or Jadon Sancho & # 39; with Jurgen Klopp and Michael Edwards enthusiastic Takumi Minamino-fueled signings instead
Reds manager Jurgen Klopp and sports director Michael Edwards were delighted with the debut performance of Takumi Minamoto in the FA Cup third-round victory over Everton and it has inspired them to be more careful this month.
The 24-year-old winger produced five goals and six assists in 14 appearances for Red Bull Salzburg this term, and Liverpool took advantage of his relatively low £ 7.25 million release clause to secure his signature.
Liverpool is looking for value in the January window , which means that they have little interest in paying inflated fees to lure Mbappe or Sancho from Paris Saint-Germain or Borussia Dortmund; two clubs with financial muscles.
Moreover, it is assumed that Klopp is satisfied with his productive front three from Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane and he could not guarantee Mbappe or Sancho a regular starting place.
In The Minamino of Japan, on the other hand, arrived at Anfield without expecting to appear often in the first XI, but he has expressed the desire to work in the team and this has provided a blueprint for Edwards' recruitment policy. .
Klopp is able to form developing players such as Salah and Mane in some of the best in the world, and Edwards is believed to remain faithful to this transfer strategy in 2020.
