Liverpool’s stand on Gambian star Yankuba Minteh confirmed

Liverpool stance on Yankuba Minteh. African footballers. Liverpool are not planning to reunite Newcastle United winger Yankuba Minteh with new head coach Arne Slot this summer.

Minteh, a 19-year-old Gambian international, has had an impressive season at Feyenoord, where he was loaned out by Newcastle after being signed from Danish side Odense OB for €7.5 million last summer. Under Slot’s guidance, Minteh made 37 appearances, scored 11 goals, and provided six assists, although he was sent off during the Dutch Cup final win over NEC Nijmegen.

Despite his success in Holland, Newcastle may consider selling Minteh to comply with Premier League profit and sustainability rules and to fund their own recruitment plans. This has led to speculation that Liverpool, along with clubs from Italy and Germany, might be interested in the player, whom Newcastle now value at €46 million.

However, according to the ECHO, while Liverpool are looking to sign a wide player during the upcoming transfer window, they currently have no interest in making a move for Minteh despite Slot’s admiration for the teenager.
