When Alisson signed for Liverpool last summer, not a lot of football fans have since stopped to think about the impact it’s had on Simon Mignolet.
The Reds number one for the good part of four seasons has been completely forgotten about since the £66 million deal to bring the Brazilian keeper to Liverpool, making just two appearances in this campaign and being a permanent fixture on the bench.
Mignolet was never the most popular figure on Merseyside, but it is still surprising to see how quickly Jurgen Klopp has been to move on from the Belgian international for Alisson in every competition, and the 31-year-old keeper is ready for a move away from Liverpool this summer.
According to the Daily Mail, Liverpool have put a £15 million valuation on Mignolet heading into the summer transfer window as the club aim to make a profit on the goalkeeper despite barely playing this season. Indeed, it’s another potential for sporting director Michael Edwards, who is simply on fire in the transfer market.
Liverpool have made a name for themselves in recent seasons of being able to squeeze as much money as possible out of their departing players, with Dominic Solanke the prime example having never scored for the Reds yet managing to be sold to Bournemouth for a reported fee of £19 million.
With Mignolet joining the club in 2013 for a reported fee of £9 million from Sunderland, Liverpool will be eager to make some profit on their second choice keeper this summer, and given his performances in the past landing him a place in club infamy, fans will be more than happy to see the Belgian walk through the exit door sooner rather than later.
Liverpool fans, will Mignolet go for £15 million? Let us know!
