Liverpool could use Takumi Minamino as makeweight for Sevilla's Lucas Ocampos

Liverpool have been linked with Sevilla winger Lucas Ocampos, who could add the kind of depth in quality the Reds have been lacking during their defence of their Premier League title - but Sevilla have been tipped to ask for Takumi Minamino in part-exchange should there be an approach.

The report expresses doubt as to whether Liverpool would be willing to meet Ocampos’ €65m (£56m) release clause, which given the Premier League club’s own financial situation seems like an accurate assumption to make at this stage.

Jurgen Klopp suggested earlier this month that Minamino may still have a future at Liverpool when his Southampton loan finishes at the end of the season.

It makes a lot of sense that he gets a chance to play maybe 17 Premier League games [for Southampton] and comes back in a completely different mindset, confidence level and all these kind of things.” For more from Jamie Spencer, follow him on Twitter and Facebook!

Injuries and a lack of adequate cover have badly hurt Liverpool defensively this season, but the loss of Diogo Jota since early December has highlighted a lack of attacking depth to lessen the burden on Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino.

Divock Origi and Xherdan Shaqiri have fallen short of filling in without a noticeable drop in quality, as did Minamino prior to his loan move to Southampton last month – although the Japan international is already proving to be a hit on the south coast.

Ocampos has been something of a journeyman since first moving to Europe from River Plate in 2012, but 2019/20 was arguably the best season of his career after joining Sevilla from Marseille, scoring 17 times in all competitions.
