Liverpool have ended their interest in Werder Bremen’s Milot Rashica because they have already signed Takumi Minamino, according to the latest reports.
Sky Sports claims that Jurgen Klopp’s side will no longer consider a move for Rashica. The club leave the Kosovo international to a quartet of PL sides, as well as Borussia Dortmund and RB Leipzig.
BILD reported back in February that the Reds wanted Rashica at £33 million, while a more recent report from them says his side do have a need to sell.
Weser Kurier, however, believes RB Leipzig will likely land the player, citing a lack of potential playing time at Anfield.
Sky say the reason is that the Reds no longer need the player, though. Minamino’s arrival a couple of months ago made sure of that, meaning the Reds aren’t keen on another versatile forward.
This surely makes a lot of sense. There is little need for Rashica now that Takumi is at the club, certainly if no one else leaves. Should someone like Xherdan Shaqiri depart, then perhaps a spot opens up.
Elsewhere, Tottenham Hotspur have no intentions of offloading their record signing Tanguy Ndombele this summer, in spite of the reports linking the Frenchman with a move to Liverpool in the summer.
Earlier this week, reports in France stated that Liverpool were lining up a loan move for the star and that the Reds wanted to include an option to buy the 23-year-old in the summer of 2022.
However, as reported by The Independent, Tottenham do not want to let Ndombele leave, despite his heavy start to life in England.
