Liverpool ponder using Minamino in talks for Sevilla star Ocampos

Liverpool are prepared to take advantage of Sevilla's interest in Takumi Minamino as they move for Lucas Ocampo.

La Razon says the Reds have identified the Argentina winger as the man to add pace and quality to their faltering attack.

Ocampos is said to have a £56million release clause in his contract with the La Liga side, which could prevent a straight cash move.

However, the report claims that Liverpool are willing to include Takumi Minamino as part of the deal to bring Ocampos to Anfield.

The Japan international joined Southampton on loan in January after struggling for minutes under Klopp and has impressed so far, scoring twice in three appearances.

Sevilla are interested in Minamino, although Liverpool will still have to stump up a significant amount of money to meet their valuation of Ocampos
