Liverpool have been restrained in the transfer market thus far. The Reds have only made the one signing despite plenty of exits from the club. There’s still time for arrivals. Liverpool making a move for Mikkel Damsgaard would surely spell the end for Takumi Minamino.
Lack of incoming signings
The Reds started the window on the front foot.
Before the window even opened Liverpool had sealed a deal to sign Ibrahima Konate from RB Leipzig.
The Frenchman arrived with plenty of hype around his potential.
Since then we’ve seen a number of players depart, including the vital Gini Wijnaldum.
Despite the litany of exits Liverpool haven’t strengthened anywhere else in the side.
Plenty of Kopites are crying out for a bolstering of the midfield and attack.
Liverpool scouting Mikkel Damsgaard
There is still time for the Reds to make a move or two.
According to Il Secolo XIX, as relayed by Sampnews24, Liverpool were scouting Mikkel Damsgaard at the weekend.
The Reds are allegedly keen on the 21-year-old Danish international and are weighing up when and if to swoop for the youngster.
Damsgaard played on the left wing for Sampdoria as his side slumped to a 1-0 defeat against AC Milan.
Despite playing the wing the Serie A star is also capable of playing just about anywhere in front of the defence having cropped up in centre midfield, on both wings and across the attacking line.
Plenty of fans will remember him for the free kick he scored against England (which Jordan Pickford should have saved).
End of the road for Takumi Minamino
If Liverpool did bring in Mikkel Damsgaard it would surely spell the end for Takumi Minamino.
The Japan international spent the second half of last season on loan at Southampton and hasn’t appeared in our opening two games.
If the Reds were to bring in another forward it would surely indicate that they have made their minds up on the 31-cap forward.
It would be a disappointment given the hype around Taki when he arrived and his impressive pre-season displays.
Hopefully he’ll be given his shot in the coming weeks but cashing in on him could be the best course of action at this rate.
