Leeds’s interest in Liverpool midfielder Takumi Minamino is hotting up ahead of Monday’s transfer deadline.

However, discussions over a deal for the USA international remain at an impasse, meaning that Leeds are now looking at alternatives.

Leeds want to take Liverpool midfielder Takumi Minamino on loan until the end of the season

The Whites have seen recent talks over a deal for USA international Brenden Aaronson stall

Minamino, 27, is believed to be a serious target and the Whites are keen to sign him on a loan deal until the end of the campaign.

The Japanese international has not started a Premier League game for Liverpool this season, but has scored twice in eight substitute appearances.

He has also featured on four occasions in the Champions League and scored four times in five games in the EFL Cup.

Minamino, 27, has mostly been restricted to appearances in cup competitions this season

German side Hamburg are continuing discussions for Leeds winger Crysencio Summerville

Minamino – who spent the second half of last season on loan at Southampton – would see his Anfield opportunities reduced further if Liverpool complete the signing of Luis Diaz from Porto.

Meanwhile, German second tier outfit Hamburg are continuing talks for Leeds winger Crysencio Summerville.

The 20-year-old has made five league appearances for the Whites this season, all of which have come as a substitute.
