Liverpool will not leave Simon Mignolet leave this summer unless ‘extraordinary’ terms are offered, according to the Echo.
While the Belgian is not happy with his playing time since Alisson joined the club last summer, it seems as though the Reds won’t let him leave unless they receive a strong financial offer.
Mignolet is arguably the best no.2 in the Premier League and should injury strike his Brazilian counterpart down, there is no doubt that he would be able to step in and perform admirably.
The Echo reports that unless Liverpool are offered ‘extraordinary terms’, they won’t be actively looking to offload Mignolet as the Reds look to consolidate on what they have rather than embarking on a £250m spending spree as they did last year.
This is a very risky approach, however, as Alberto Moreno and Daniel Sturridge have left the club and haven’t been replaced which means that the squad is already thinner than it was last season.
Add to that the fact that there are only three natural fullbacks in the squad and their backups are James Milner and Joe Gomez.
Jurgen Klopp’s main objective for next season is to win the Premier League for the first time in his own career and in Liverpool’s history and while he recorded a club record tally of 97 points in the league last season, not investing in the squad will only make his job that much more difficult.
Adding the likes of Junior Firpo and Nicolas Pepe to the squad would not only replace Moreno and Sturridge but it would also improve on what the former Reds were able to offer.
