Simon Mignolet

English Premier League leaders Liverpool have snubbed a number of offers for Belgian goalkeeper Simon Mignolet despite the fact that he has not been in the picture for the team this term, according to reports.

The report claims that the Reds management have refused talks with suitors as they find Simon Mignolet as a backup for the rest of this season in case of emergency situations like injuries.

The Merseyside club are desperate to win the English Premier League this season and they are not ready to take any chances with their squad even if they will not have any addition.

Simon Mignolet has seen just two games this season across all competitions as he has been relegated to a bench role since the arrival of Alisson Becker in a £67 million deal in the last summer window.

The Belgium international is keen to quit the club knowing that he is running out of age and needs to make an impact as far as his career is concerned before retirement.

However, suggestions are that Simon Mignolet will be allowed to leave the club in the coming summer window after the season has been concluded.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is looking forward to winning his first trophy in his three years in charge of the club.
