Report: Watford want to sign £15m-rated Liverpool player

Simon Mignolet is set to depart Anfield this summer, with a clutch of Premier League clubs interested.

Watford are keen to complete the summer signing of  Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet, according to a report in the Daily Mail.

The Belgian has played second fiddle during 2018/19 to Alisson Becker and the Reds are set to consider bids of £15 million for the stopper.

Mignolet has just two domestic cup appearances to his name this season and will be offloaded during the summer.

Despite his time at Anfield coming to a close, he has been a decent servant for the Reds. In 204 games for the club, he has kept 66 clean sheets.

Watford won’t be the only interested party in for Mignolet. The report claims that Norwich City and Bournemouth are both also keen on the custodian.

TBR Verdict

The 31-year-old has fallen victim to a sign of the times at Anfield.

 

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp identified that if he was to push the club forwards he would need better players, and ultimately a better defence.

The big-money signing of Alisson Becker has been a masterstroke. The Reds have looked more solid than ever this season and that has largely been down to the form of the Brazilian.

Mignolet can still do a job for someone in the Premier League. Given his age he needs to play regular football and Watford would be the ideal place for him to do that.

Ben Foster has had a decent campaign so he won’t walk into the side. His arrival would give Javi Gracia two quality goalkeepers at his disposal, however, and give them solid foundations to build upon next season.
