Liverpool have agreed to sell Japan international Takumi Minamino to Monaco in an 18m euro (£15.5m) deal.

The Ligue 1 side were one of a number of clubs interested in the 27-year-old, who joined the Reds from Red Bull Salzburg in 2019.

The deal for Minamino is worth a fixed 15m euros (£12.9m) and 3m euros (£2.6m) in add-ons.

He scored 14 times in 55 appearances during his time at Anfield and was Liverpool’s top scorer in domestic cup competitions last season.

Minamino’s seven goals were crucial as Jurgen Klopp’s side won the FA Cup and League Cup.

However, he made just 11 appearances, including one start, in the Premier League as Liverpool finished a point behind Manchester City.

Minamino also joined Southampton on loan in February 2021 and made 10 appearances, before returning to Liverpool for the 2021-22 campaign.
