Red Bull Salzburg sporting director Christoph Freund has confirmed Liverpool's interest in signing Takumi Minamino.
Freund has revealed the two clubs have held talks over the attacking midfielder. The 24-year-old impressed Jürgen Klopp and the Liverpool players in the two meetings between the sides in the Champions League and the Premier League club are keen to take advantage of the low release clause in the player’s contract and get the deal done in January.
"I can confirm that there are currently discussions with Liverpool. It is an honour [such] clubs are interested in our players," he said.
Minamino joined Salzburg from Cerezo Osaka in 2015 and has scored 41 goals in 129 league games for the Austrian side.
