Follow in the footsteps of Wataru Endo...Liverpool has been in contact with Takefusa Kubo Transfers

Liverpool signed Japan midfielder Wataru Endo in the summer of last year, and are no strangers to Asian players, as 29-year-old Takumi Minamino, also of Japan, was with the club from the winter of 2020 to the summer of 2022.

Liverpool, such a prestigious club, is targeting a new Japanese player. According to Relevo, they made contact with Real Sociedad midfielder Kubo Takehide before the transfer window opened this winter, but the player is not looking at a move at the moment and nothing has come forward.

The 22-year-old midfielder, who has attracted interest from clubs in Napoli and Saudi Arabia, is currently representing Japan in the Asian Cup. He has also found a place at his club Real Sociedad, where he has shown his ability not only in La Liga but also in the Champions League.

The young attacking midfielder, who has been playing in a top position for the national team, has been used as a right winger for the club, and has scored six goals and assisted four times in 25 games so far. He has been a consistent performer and is rapidly gaining a reputation for himself.

He has also made 32 appearances for the Japanese national team, and there are rumors that Premier League clubs such as Manchester United are interested in him.

Jurgen Klopp, who transformed Borussia Dortmund into a powerhouse with former Japan midfielder Shinji Kagawa and has ties with Japanese players, will be leaving the team at the end of the season, but will a third Japanese player ever land at Anfield?
