With Sadio Mane's departure imminent, Liverpool are ramping up their interest in Leeds United winger Raphinha , according to the Mirror.
The Brazil international has long been linked with Barcelona, but their much-publicised financial troubles require them to sell assets first.
Takumi Minamino could be used as part of a package to sign the 25-year-old, who contributed 11 and three assists as Leeds secured Premier League safety.
Leeds manager Jesse Marsch is reportedly a fan of the Japan international, leaving Liverpool with potential leverage over a deal.
