A number of clubs have reportedly made Liverpool offers for Simon Mignolet

Simon Mignolet apparently wants to leave Anfield this summer.

Liverpool have received multiple offers to take goalkeeper Simon Mignolet away from Anfield this summer, according to the Evening Standard.

They report that the Belgian international wants to leave the club this summer and the Reds are willing to grant his wish – with long-term target Alex McCarthy in the frame to replace him.

And the former Sunderland man is apparently not short on suitors despite a patchy spell at Anfield where he struggled with the pressure at times.

 

But his professionalism last season when Alisson came in as undisputed number one was impressive and should earn him the respect of Liverpool fans, even if many would not be too gutted to see him go.

Mignolet, who Spotrac claim earns £60,000 a week at Anfield, is a good Premier League goalkeeper but was not cut out for the pressure cooker of Anfield, especially at a time when he was playing behind a defence largely not fit for purpose.

He was between the sticks when the Reds went so close to winning the title in 2013/14 and if and when his move away is finalised, he will go with a Champions League medal to his name.

That’s vindication for the mockery and jibes he has had at times throughout a tough Anfield career and it will be interesting to see where he ends up.
