"The big clubs have been watching him and if I was them, I’d have no hesitation to sign him. Takumi is ready to make the next step in January."

The Austrian champions' sporting director furthermore confirmed on Thursday that Liverpool are in talks with Salzburg.

"I can confirm that there are currently discussions with Liverpool", Fruend said.

"It is an honour which clubs are interested in our players."

Minamino who plays as a attacking-midfielder impressed against Liverpool in their two Champions League group games this season, scoring at Anfield.
