Liverpool have parted ways with goalkeeper Simon Mignolet.
The Belgian stopper has officially joined Club Bruges after six years at Anfield, with the deal thought to be worth around £6.4 million (BBC Sport).
Mignolet made 204 appearances for Liverpool after signing for the club from Sunderland in 2013.
Having made just two appearances last term, evidently the time was right for the 31-year-old to seek a new challenge, with Alisson firmly established as the club’s number one.
Mignolet was a good servant for the club, and fans have wished him well for his new adventure back in his homeland.
Attentions have immediately turned to Mignolet’s potential replacement.
Former West Ham United goalkeeper Adrian – who is currently a free agent – is being heavily linked having left the Irons earlier this summer.
The Telegraph are claiming the club is ‘working to finalise’ a deal – but fans appear to be craving another Spaniard to be Alisson’s backup.
Liverpool fans react
Following Mignolet’s sale, many Liverpool fans have been discussing the prospect of Anfield hero Pepe Reina returning to the club.
AC Milan stopper Reina previously spent nine years with the Reds and made almost 400 appearances.

In all serious I would love nothing more than Pepe Reina coming back. Probably not going to happen, but we can dream.
