Domino effect: Selling Mignolet to Besiktas may give green light for Vida deal

Although Liverpool have spent over £150 million this summer, Klopp’s transfer business may not be over just yet. 

After a promising but ultimately disappointing season, Jurgen Klopp will be eager to win some silverware next season.,

While reaching the Champions League final and finishing in the top-four is a great achievement, given how good the Reds were in parts last season, it’s surprising that the club didn’t come away with anything to show for it.

In order to remedy the lack of silverware, Klopp has splashed out a world record fee for Roma’s Alisson. With Alisson’s arrival, it now means that either Simon Mignolet or Loris Karius will leave. According to The Sun, Besiktas are ready to offer £12 million for Mignolet.

The Breakdown

With Alisson’s arrival, Simon Mignolet seemingly has no place in the squad as Loris Karius will likely become the club’s second-choice ‘keeper.

Moreover, with Besiktas concluding a deal to send Fabri to Fulham, the Turkish club now needs a replacement. From Liverpool’s view, this new transfer update could mean that they can now finalise a deal for Besiktas’ defender Domagoj Vida.

The two clubs have been in negotiations with Besiktas over a deal for weeks and have apparently agreed personal terms with the Croatian defender.

With Mignolet now seemingly surplus to requirements, and with Besiktas ready to offer £12 million, this may now clear the way for Vida to makes his move to Merseyside.

It’s basically a trade deal in all but name, and it’s deal that would complete Klopp’s all-star team.
