Liverpool, Manchester United, and Arsenal aim to sign Japan's winger Kaoru Mitoma Transfers

Kaoru Mitoma, a Japanese national team player who joined Brighton from Kawasaki Frontale in the summer of 2021, improved rapidly during his one-year apprenticeship in Belgium.The following season, he won the trust of manager Roberto De Zerbi and became a regular in the team, partly due to the departure of Belgian national team forward Leandro Trossard.

His attacks on the left flank with Ecuadorian defender Pervis Estupinan have been a challenge for opposing defenses, and his ability to dribble in alone has been a challenge for numerous right backs.

Last season, he scored 10 goals and provided 8 assists in 41 games, contributing greatly to the club’s first qualification for a European tournament.

This season, he has not been in his best form due to fatigue, but his ability to overtake opponents in the blink of an eye has shone through, and he remains a mainstay of the team. The 26-year-old forward, who continues to produce results in the Premier League, is always surrounded by transfer rumors.

According to TEAMtalk, Liverpool, Manchester United, and Arsenal are likely to battle it out in the transfer market this summer to sign the Brighton forward, and his club is preparing to sell.

Liverpool, which has a number of left wingers available, has no need to set its sights on a new left-sided attacker. If anything, a left-handed right winger who can succeed Mohamed Salah of Egypt should be the top priority, and the remaining budget should be used for a generational change in the center back group as a basic strategy.

At this point, it is difficult to see a future for Kaoru Mitate at Anfield, but things could change quickly if one of the current squad decides to leave the team.

Will the 26-year-old winger make the step up to a stronger club this summer?
