The report also claims that Besiktas are one of the several clubs interested in the player but they want to sign him on loan. Barcelona, interestingly, have made no contact with the player’s representatives regarding a move.
There is another problem for Liverpool and that is Mignolet’s contract. The Belgian had signed a new deal in 2016 and he still has three more years left to run.
The Belgian would be returning to Melwood for pre-season training on Sunday but it would be a miracle if he stays at Liverpool beyond the summer window.
Mignolet hasn’t convinced since making the switch from Sunderland. Some might even say he should have been sold a season or two earlier.
Even if clubs are not willing to pay the £12million we want, Michael Edwards must ensure we get a good deal out of him.
