Both the Belgian and Loris Karius were given extended runs in the team last season but, after both dropped disastrous displays against Arsenal and Real Madrid respectively, both failed to nail down the starting spot as their own.

This led to Jürgen Klopp breaking the transfer record for a goalkeeper with the acquisition of Alisson Becker from AS Roma for a hefty £66million.

The large fee involved means undoubtedly the Brazilian will be the Anfield side’s number one and with Karius likely to remain as his understudy, Mignolet has been the goalkeeper put on the market this summer.

Liverpool are looking to recoup around £13million for the 30-year-old, with Napoli the only club to register an interest so far. Although the English transfer window slammed shut on Thursday, Liverpool can still sell players to foreign clubs with transfer windows abroad not closing until the end of the month.

Carlo Ancelotti’s side are on the lookout for a goalkeeper after Pepe Reina left on the expiration of his contract to join fellow Italian side AC Milan. Napoli have already signed Orestis Karnezis from Watford, but it seems the Italian’s are still on the look out for one more.
