Premier League club Crystal Palace are said to be interested in a move for Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet this summer.

According to the publication from the stables of the London Evening Standard, the Eagles want to sign the Belgian international shot stopper this summer.

Liverpool goalkeeper Mignolet is also attracting the interest of fellow Premier League club Brighton and Hove Albion.

Apart from the two Premier League clubs, the 31-year-old is also attracting the interest of clubs in France and Germany.

Simon Mignolet has made over 150 appearances for Liverpool in all competitions since he joined the club from Sunderland six years ago.

He would have left Liverpool last summer upon the signing of Alisson Becker in a world-record deal for a goalkeeper but his exit was blocked by the Reds manager Jurgen Klopp.

The signing of Alisson Becker relegated him to second choice permanently.

Liverpool signed Brazilian international Becker from Italian Serie A giants AS Roma last summer for a fee believed to be around £67m.

Mignolet has two years left on his present contract with Liverpool who would demand at least £8m for him with Alex McCarthy of fellow Premier League club Southampton lined up to replace him.

Liverpool are also open to the idea of keeping him at the club this summer especially if clubs don’t meet up with their valuation for him.
