English Premier League giants Liverpool are set to boost their side with the acquisition of Sevilla midfielder Lucas Ocampos in the summer.

The Jurgen Klopp side has fired blanks this season and according to reports from La Razon, the German is keen is open to a player plus cash deal, involving Japanese international Takumi Minamino heading in the opposite direction to the Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan.

Minamino is currently on loan at Southampton, after seeing his first-team opportunities limited at Liverpool in the first half of the season and there is a higher chance that he might not be in the tea for the foreseeable future with Sevilla said to be keen on the former RB Salzburg star.

Ocampos has a £56m release clause included in his contract, but with Minamino valued at around £10m, Liverpool will hope to drive a deal down to closer to a price of £40m.

Liverpool are in the market for a midfielder to replace Gini Wijnaldum who is expected to leave the club in the summer on a free transfer.
