Mignolet edging closer to Liverpool exit

Simon Mignolet

Reports today claim that Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet is edging closer to securing a transfer to Napoli.

Having found himself relegated to third choice at Anfield behind new £67milllion signing Alisson and Loris Karius, Mignolet is trying to secure a move before the European transfer window closes.

The 30-year-old is wanted by the Italian outfit and although a deal appears close, his agent says there is no agreement in place as yet.

Nico Vaesen, said: “We are in discussions with Napoli, but there is no agreement yet.

“In the end it is in their interest to find a solution.

“Liverpool want to keep Simon, but he wants to play in matches – and he should.

“He deserves to play for a big club.

“Simon is the best option for Napoli in terms of quality, even though there is a financial aspect to it.”

Vaesen is hopeful that a deal will go through before the Serie A transfer window closes on Friday.
