Liverpool keeper to move on

19th May 2019, 03:09 by Michael Holland

Liverpool are ready to cash in on Simon Mignolet this summer but only if a club is willing to match their £15million valuation.

The 31-year-old is desperate to play first-team football after being restricted to just two appearances in the domestic cup competitions this season, and there will be no shortage of interest in him during the close season.

Premier League rivals Bournemouth, Watford and newly-promoted Norwich are all on the look-out for new goalkeepers this summer and have been linked with a move for Mignolet, who would jump at the chance of a fresh start in England.

Liverpool will be open to a deal but will not let the player, who will be on the bench for the Champions League final against Tottenham, leave on the cheap, and are reported to have placed a £15million price tag on his head.

The Reds will want to draft in an adequate replacement, who can provide cover for Alisson Becker, and such a goalkeeper will not come cheap either.

Liverpool are said to be looking to Italy to draft in a new number two if, as expected, Mignolet moves on.
