Liverpool goalkeeper having offers from France

November 11, 2018

French club Nice are interested in a January move for Liverpool stopper Simon Mignolet, according to Het Belang van Limburg.

Ligue 1 side, who are managed by former Arsenal and Manchester City star Patrick Vieira, and he is unhappy with his two current shot-stoppers.

The French hero is not thrilled with both of Walter Benitez and Yoan Cardinale, and as such, he’s got an eye on Simon Mignolet, who is very much out of favour at Merseyside.

The 30-year-old goalkeeper has played just one game this campaign as Alisson is firmly the club’s first-choice and as such, he is willing to make a move.

Simon Mignolet wanted to leave in the summer transfer window but having loaned Loris Karius to Besiktas, the Reds kept the Belgian as cover for Alisson Becker.

Whether Liverpool would be willing to cash in on the Belgian star remains to be seen as letting him go would result in youngster Caoimhin Kelleher becoming the club’s number two.

Simon Mignolet was number one choice at Anfield last year but the error-prone Loris Karius replaced him between the sticks.
