Liverpool have turned down initial approaches from Leeds and Monaco for Takumi Minamino… while Atalanta register interest in signing forward’s team-mate Divock Origi
- Takumi Minamino has made 18 appearances for Liverpool so far this season
- But just six of them have been starts and five have come in the Carabao Cup
- Divock Origi has scored five goals in 10 appearances for the Reds in 2021-22
The Japan international has made 18 appearances for the Reds this season, however just a third of them have seen him named in the starting XI.
The 27-year-old has scored four goals in five Carabao Cup appearances this term and netted twice in eight top-flight games, but reports suggest the Reds have no real desire to offload him.

It is also understood a substantial offer would need to be submitted for the Reds to deliberate the potential sale of a player signed from RB Salzburg in January 2020 for £7.25million.
The attacker has already had one spell out on loan since joining the Anfield outfit, scoring two goals in 10 appearances in the second half of last season for Southampton.
Meanwhile, Serie A outfit Atalanta are interested in striker Minamino’s Liverpool team-mate Divock Origi.
The Belgium forward has scored five goals in 10 appearances this season despite playing fewer than 400 minutes in 2021-22.
But the 26-year-old could consider his future with the Belgian keen to represent his country at the Qatar World Cup in October and November.
