Mignolet ready to call it quits


Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet is ready to quit the club.

That is the claim being made by Belgian newspaper La Derniere Heure, who are reporting that the thirty year old is attracting interest from a couple of clubs on the continent.

Bundesliga club Borussia Dortmund and Serie A contenders Napoli are both said to be interested in signing the Belgium international this Summer.

The former Sunderland stopper lost his place to fellow keeper Loris Karius earlier this year and has indicated on social media that he is not happy with a place on the bench.

Unlike outfield players, goalkeepers don’t see regular rotation. Should a ‘keeper find themselves in Mignolet’s position their best bet usually is to move on.

It now appears that he has had his final chance to prove his worth to manager Jurgen Klopp and is likely to be allowed to leave at the end of the season – provided the right offer is made to the club.

The chance to sign for either Dortmund or Napoli is likely to be too good to turn down for Mignolet as he looks to get his career back on track.

In an ironic twist, he could be set to replace Pepe Reina if he joins the Italian club – after succeeding the Spaniard at Anfield in 2014.
