BARCELONA are set to make bid for Liverpool’s third-choice goalkeeper Simon Mignolet, according to reports in Spain.
Marca claim the Nou Camp giants are set to bid for the out-of-favour Belgian as a replacement for Jasper Cillessen.
Mignolet is now unlikely to play for the Reds again after Alisson completed his £68million move to Anfield.
Despite his numerous recent blunders – including two in the Champions League final – Loris Karius is also above Mignolet in the pecking order.
The Belgian stopper would not be signed as first-choice at Barca though – with Marc-Andre ter Stegen holding that mantle.
However, Barcelona see him as a fine understudy to the German with Cillessen on the way out.
The Dutch keeper is tipped to leave the Nou Camp this window after growing frustrated with his lack of first-team action – playing just twice last term in La Liga.
Marca now claim Mignolet tops Barcelona’s list of back-up goalkeepers – with Wolfsburg’s Koen Casteels and Borussia Monchengladbach’s Yann Sommer also featuring.
Should the deal go ahead Liverpool’s goalkeeping revolution will be well underway.
As well as signing Alisson for a world-record fee for a No1, the Reds have sold Danny Ward to Leicester in a £12.5m deal.
