Barcelona eye summer move for Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet
Barcelona eye summer move for
Liverpool goalie Simon Mignolet.

Spanish champions Barcelona are
preparing to table a deal for Liverpool's
shot-stopper Simon Mignolet as backup for
Marc-Andre ter Stegen, report coming out
of Spain suggests.

According to a UK Sun report citing Spain’s
news channel Marca Barcelona are ready to
offer the out-of-favour Belgian an escape
route from Anfield as well as a replacement
for Holland’s Jasper Cillessen.

Following the arrival of former Roma shot-
stopper Alisson to Anfield in a £68million
world record switch Mignolet is unlikely to
represent the Kop side again.

On the other hand, Germany’s Loris Karius is
equally rated slightly above Mignolet in Reds
pecking order despite his schoolboy errors,
including two in the UEFA Champions
League final in May.

Mignolet is expected to play second fiddle at
the Nou Camp behind Marc-Andre ter
Stegen who is currently the No. 1 choice at

However, Barca eggheads see the Belgian
as a quality understudy to the German
goalkeeper as Cillessen is linked with a
move away from the La Liga champions this

The former Ajax shot-stopper is unhappy
over lack of regular matches after two
appearances in the Spanish topflight last

The report further added that that the
Belgian currently tops Barcelona's potential
list of back-up shot-stoppers that include
the duo of Wolfsburg's Koen Casteels and
Borussia Monchengladbach's Yann Sommer.

Interestingly, if the deal sees the light of the
day, Liverpool's goalkeeping revolution will
rightly be on course.

Aside from landing Alisson, the Reds have
also offloaded Danny Ward in a £12.5m deal
to Premier League rivals Leicester City.
