Release clause of £51m...Liverpool could go on the offensive for Takefusa Kubo Transfers

With Egyptian international Mohamed Salah on the verge of a possible move to Saudi Arabia, Liverpool will have to decide whether to renew his contract or sell him.

And the search for his successor is also being pushed forward, with reports of interest in various forwards, particularly right wingers such as Yohan Bakayoko and Pedro Neto.

Japan midfielder Kanehide Kubo, who plays for Real Sociedad, is said to be one of the targets, and there have been rumours of plans for Liverpool to replace him on the right wing.

According to Fichajes, Liverpool are set to launch an offensive for the 22-year-old midfielder, who has scored seven goals this season for his club, this summer. His release clause is reportedly set at around £51 million.

Although he has played a lot in midfield for the national team, he is more often used as a right winger for Real Sociedad. Although he is not a big body, he is strong in collisions and his shooting and assisting accuracy after cutting in has increased.

However, the player is said to want to stay in Spain, where he is familiar with the game, and it has been suggested that his past club Real Madrid could buy him back.

The paper also suggests that the next few weeks will be crucial in deciding the Japanese player’s departure, and with the midfielder under contract until June 2029, will he be ready for his first challenge in England in the future?
