Liverpool and Belgium goalkeeper Simon Mignolet is wanted by Napoli this summer according to his agent.
With the signing of Brazilian goalkeeper Alisson, Simon Mignolet has found his first-team chances drop even further. He could be open to a move elsewhere.
According to the Express, Napoli are keen signing the former Sunderland goalkeeper.
Simon Mignolet’s agent has confirmed Napoli’s interest but stated that they haven’t made their move for the player yet.
He told Radio Kiss Kiss Napoli: “We will wait over the next few days to see if they will present an offer.”
“Considering that the market will close in a few days, I imagine that we will have to do it soon if we want to make a deal everyone will agree to.
“The interest is not new. Napoli like Mignolet.”
“They have previously enquired about his availability in other transfer windows.”
“This will not be the last word on a move to them.”
ESPN pundit Steve Nicol has said that Mignolet would be “perfect” for Barcelona.
“If he wants, or is happy at 30 years of age, to kind of just be known now as a No 2, then this is perfect,” Nicol said.
“It’s perfect for him, and it’s perfect for Barcelona as well.
“I think there’s a chance that something like this might happen. It might not be Barcelona, but I think he goes.”
