Barcelona eye Liverpool keeper Simon Mignolet – report

Reports suggest Barcelona are hoping to capitalise on Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet’s dissatisfaction after his club signed Alisson last week.

25-year-old Alisson became the most expensive goalkeeper of all time after the Merseyside club agreed a fee of £66.8 million with Roma, and is expected to become Liverpool’s new number one.

Mignolet, 30, is unlikely to want to become third choice at Liverpool and is said to have been listed as a target for La Liga giants Barcelona, as the Catalan club look towards a future without Jasper Cillessen.

According to Marca, the list of keepers Barcelona hope could challenge Marc-Andre ter Stegen’s top sport also includes the likes of Koen Casteels from Wolfsburg and Yann Sommer of Borussia Monchengladbach.

Mignolet was included in Roberto Martinez’s Belgium squad at this summer’s World Cup, but was second choice to Chelsea keeper Thibaut Courtois.
