Jose Enrique tells Liverpool how to replace Takumi Minamino as his move to Monaco comes to an end

Jose Enrique has admitted that Takumi Minamino’s departure from Liverpool is “great news for him and for us” as his move to Monaco draws to a close.

The Japan international was the Reds’ top scorer in both domestic competitions last season but found playing time hard to come by in the Premier League and Champions League – he scored 10 goals and registered one assist in 22 appearances (in all competitions) last time out. term.

Our former full-back has now urged the club to replace the former RB Salzburg man with a left-footed right winger.

“Great news for him and for us too. He wanted to have more minutes and that’s not possible with the team, so we have to wish him the best and hopefully we’ll use this Monet to invest in something. one for the right wing of the left foot because now [Divock] Origi is gone, Sadio [Mane] and Taki and we sign [Darwin] Nunez,” the Spaniard tweeted.

Enrique is right to point out that three attacking players have now left the club this summer.

Divock Origi, Sadio Mane and Takumi Minamino have all left Merseyside on good terms, while Darwin Nunez and Fabio Carvalho are the attacking arrivals at Anfield this summer.

Our strength in depth was key to our success last season and the fact that our four-time hopefuls went all the way proves how important it is to have ample coverage across the pitch.

It looks like our transfer activity this summer is in terms of revenue, but we’ll just have to wait and see.

It is of course sad to see our No.18 go, but he leaves with fond memories of his time at the club and having learned every day from his world-class teammates at the AXA academy, as well as being coached by Jürgen Klopp. , he will arrive in Monaco confident of being able to showcase his talent.

He cost the club just over £7million in January 2020, so for us to make a profit on the striker despite never really being a regular starter is a superb bargain.

There’s no reason he can’t shine in Ligue 1 next season and we certainly wish him the best for the future.
