Mignolet Keen On Parting Ways With Liverpool: 3 Replacements For Klopp To Consider Including PL Ace

According to a recent report by the Evening Standard, Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet is keen on making a switch away from Anfield during this summer transfer period. The same source has also claimed that the Belgian keeper wants to part ways with the Reds in search of regular first-team opportunities in the coming years.

The 31-year-old had to endure a difficult season at Merseyside after he consistently found himself on the Liverpool bench as he had to play second-fiddle to Jurgen Klopp’s first-choice keeper Alisson Becker in the previous campaign. The Belgian shot-stopper only made two appearances for the reigning European champions in the last term, conceding four goals in the process. 

There is no denying the fact that Mignolet needs to earn more game time if he wants to rekindle his career in European football. Thus, it might be best for Klopp to allow the Belgian talent to leave this summer and bring in a suitable replacement who would provide more competition for Alisson on the field.

Here are three options for Klopp to consider as he looks to replace Mignolet during this ongoing transfer window.

Joe Hart

The Burnley keeper is vastly experienced in English football and has previously won the Premier League twice during his days at Manchester City. He is a reliable keeper at the back who has earned 75 international caps for England thus far.

The 32-year-old still has a lot to offer on the pitch even though he is heading into the twilight years of his playing career. Therefore, Klopp should think about replacing Mignolet with Hart before the start of the new campaign.

Franco Armani

The Argentine shot-stopper has made a name for himself in South American football as he put in a series of outstanding displays for River Plate last season. The 32-year-old conceded 18 goals and kept 13 clean sheets in 27 matches for the Argentine giants across all competitions. He will undoubtedly be a worthy alternative to Mignolet as he is a quality keeper and has what it takes to push Alisson for a place in Klopp’s first-team next season.

Keylor Navas

The Real Madrid outcast was a frustrated figure at the Spanish capital in the previous campaign as he struggled to secure a regular starting berth with Thibaut Courtois often being preferred ahead of him. The three-time UEFA Champions League winner will fit in well at Liverpool as long as he is willing to fight for the right of playing in the Reds starting XI in the upcoming season.
