Japan national team player Takumi Minamino will reportedly sit down with Liverpool to discuss his future at the club this summer. According to media portalHampshireLive, the attacking midfielder from Japan is determined to play regular first team football as from the start of next season even if it’s not going to be at parent club Liverpool and that desire will lead him to talk with manager JurgenKlopp and other Liverpool officials about his future at the club.


Liverpool signed Minamino at the start of last year and he was unable to break into the starting XI at the club in one year before he was farmed out on loan to fellow Premier League team Southampton at the start of this year. The Japan international moved to the Saints on a short-term loan until this summer and they arelikely to sign him permanently.


Several Liverpool fans were not happy with the team selection from Jurgen Klopp during last night’s league encounter with Burnley at home. The Liverpool fans complained about the omission of Japan national team player Takumi Minamino from the XI that started the Burnley game at Anfield last night. The Reds faithfuls wanted the petite Japan international attacker to start the game against the Clarets but they didn’t get their wish despite the fact that the Liverpool boss made several changes into the starting line-up with the likes of XerdanShaqiri, DivockOrigi and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain coming into the XI.

Ahead of the game, Liverpool had gone four matches without a win after the Premier League encounters with West Brom, Newcastle United, Southampton and Manchester United. Liverpool picked up three points from those four games and that saw them drop to fourth position and six points off the summitpresently occupied by arch rivals Manchester United.
