Mignolet to stage talks with Klopp over his future

  Mignolet to stage talks with Klopp over his future Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet is reportedly set to hold crunch talks with Jurgen Klopp as he ponders an exit from Anfield this summer. The Belgian international lost his place in the Liverpool starting line-up to Loris Karius last term, who the Reds are now looking to replace with a high-quality goalkeeper ahead of next season. Mignolet, 30, has been linked with a move away from Merseyside in recent times and he has since discussed his future at the club. As quoted by the Mirror, the experienced shot-stopper delivered an update on his ongoing situation at Liverpool. “I am going to look at my situation when I come back from the World Cup. At this moment I have not been speaking to anyone at Liverpool because I have been trying to focus on Belgium.” “John Achterberg (Liverpool keeper coach) sends me a text before every game, to see how I am and if I am fit so I keep in touch with him. I didn’t play in the last few months at Liverpool, so after the World Cup I will look at everything. I can’t say much more. I don’t know how long I will have off after the tournament. I need to speak to the manager about that.” Mignolet is currently away on international duty with Belgium as they look to progress from the knockout stages of the World Cup. When he returns to Liverpool, though, he faces an uncertain future. The Reds have had no luck in recruiting a new first-team goalkeeper as of yet in the summer transfer window, but it seems somewhat likely that Mignolet will not be playing his football at Anfield next term.
