Reports indicate that out of favour Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet has caught the fancy of both Borussia Dortmund and Napoli.

It has been pretty clear for the last two months that the future is uncertain for Belgian stopper Mignolet after he was dropped in favour of Loris Karius.

The German has been superb since coming into the side and now has the most clean sheets in the Champions League (5), not conceding a goal in 62.5% of his games in Europe with Liverpool.

With Karius ahead of Mignolet in the pecking order and rumours abound that Alisson Becker could arrive in the summer, the former Sunderland man needs to seriously consider what is best for his future.

According to Belgian news outlet DH, Simon Mignolet has caught the fancy of Borussia Dortmund and Napoli.

The 30-year-old has a contract with Liverpool until 2021 but is expected to leave at the end of the season and having recently changed his agent, the Belgian goalie might be fielding offers from abroad to kickstart his career elsewhere.

The departure of Mignolet is one that should really have happened a couple years ago as he is not quite at the level required of a club like Liverpool. With Jurgen Klopp looking to challenge for the Premier League next season, a top goalkeeper is of the utmost importance.

The jury is still out on Loris Karius despite the fact that he has been in stellar form for several weeks now. I am personally torn between giving him an extended run next season and making sure the position is nailed down by signing the likes of Alisson.

Regardless of what Klopp ultimately decides on, the fact of the matter is that Mignolet leaving signals an immediate improvement between the sticks.
