Liverpool FC transfer news: Mignolet set for €7m move to Brugge
Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet is off to Club Brugge, with the transfer window ending in a few days.
The 31-year-old made just two starts for Liverpool last season as Alisson joined from AS Roma.
The Brazilian was excellent in goal and helped us to the Champions League crown and the best defensive record in the league.
James Pearce claimed that a deal worth close to €7m has been agreed between the clubs and the Reds are in the market for a back-up keeper.
Klopp did not want to lose Mignolet
The Belgian keeper is a fantastic professional and even though he didn’t start enough games, the 31-year-old always gave it his all in training.
Pearce added that Jurgen Klopp did not want to lose the former Sunderland keeper, but the club decided to sell once their financial demands were met.
Mignolet had a great debut campaign with the Reds as we almost won the Premier League under Brendan Rodgers.
The Belgian has made some errors in the past but is a great shot-stopper, and his experience will be missed.

The Brazilian is one of the best in the world but we need to have a decent back-up should Alisson need a break or pick up an injury.
