Liverpool manager scouting Bundesliga ace, ready to make him Mignolet’s replacement

Even after ten Transfer Tavern pints, you’ll find the Liverpool fans speaking clearly in unison in regards to exactly what they feel their club needs in the transfer market this summer.

Well then, reports pouring out from Germany will have cheered them up somewhat in light of the disappointing loss to Swansea this weekend.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has asked his scouts to run the rule over Cologne stopper Timmo Horn ahead of a potential summer move, according to Bild

Danny Ward was afforded a second start against Swansea City yesterday, though neither he nor Simon Mignolet have been wholly convincing as the club’s first-choice ‘keeper.

Despite a decent run of saves recently, the latter has come under criticism from large sections of the club’s support after a series of blunders.

He penned a new long-term deal on Merseyside earlier this year, though the Reds have been linked with a number of potential replacements.

Now, the report claims Klopp asked chief scout Dave Fellows to travel to Germany in order to watch Horn up close.

By no means the finished article, the 22-year old hasn’t kept a clean sheet since March, though remains a highly rated prospect in the Bundesliga.

With the Anfield chief having an extensive knowledge of the Bundesliga, he could represent a familiar option between the posts moving forward.

Is Horn a definite upgrade on Mignolet?
