‘Liverpool won’t let Minamino go unless they get a serious offer’
SSN Chief Reporter Kaveh Solhekol on ‘The Transfer Show’ (January 27):

“Minamino is a player who has not been playing regularly, he has only started six games this season, four of those were in the Carabao Cup, but Liverpool’s thinking is we are still in four competitions and we do not want to let him go unless we receive a serious offer.
