Now the transfer window has shut in England, it’s time for the other European clubs to wake up and bolster their squads, and to do so, some will go fishing in the Premier League’s lost & found box.
Among the items desperately trying to find a new owner is Simon Mignolet, who is probably goalkeeper number three on Jürgen Klopp’s list at Liverpool these days.
The arrival of Alisson has relegated Loris Karius to the bench, and the Belgium international should probably think about leaving Merseyside for fist-team football.
One of his solutions could be Napoli, who are struggling to get a deal done with Standard Liège for Guillermo Ochoa, and who could turn to the Liverpool man, according to Corriere dello Sport.
The Italian newspaper states he’d have to lower his wages to complete the move, but there’s hope he could be convinced with the ability to play more first-team football and team up with his good friend Dries Mertens.
At this stage, it seems more like a long shot backup plan, but who knows? Perhaps Mignolet’s desperation can produce a miracle?
