Simon Mignolet’s representative admits the Belgian international is considering his next move following the signing of Alisson.
The goalkeeper has been strongly tipped to leave Liverpool this summer having lost his starting spot to Loris Karius last season.
Alisson’s £65million arrival has since fuelled such speculation, with Mignolet unlikely to settle for a spot as the Reds’ third choice.
Jurgen Klopp’s invitation for Danny Ward to compete for the no.1 role prior to the signing of Alisson somewhat epitomised Mignolet’s bleak Anfield future.
Speaking to Walfoot, Star Factory agent Nico Vaesen said: “It does not change the situation: our goal is to find a solution for Simon to play and the arrival of Alisson does not change that.”
“We know that a player at 60-70 million euros does not put himself on the bench. We are looking at the situation and are looking for a solution for his playing time. There are options, the next few days will be decisive.”
Vaesen added: “Anything is possible, only one requirement, a good team in a good competition.”
Ward’s permanent switch to Leicester City served as the latest hint that Mignolet’s first-team opportunities promise to be limited on Merseyside.
The 30-year-old is currently on an extended break after returning from the World Cup with Belgium and hasn’t been named in Liverpool’s 29-man squad to tour the USA.
Youth goalkeepers Kamil Grabara and Caoimhin Kelleher have both been included and could be given opportunities to vie for future senior involvement.
Mignolet played an integral role in Liverpool securing a top-four finish at the end of the 2016/2017 campaign, but couldn’t carry his form into last season.
His struggle to find some consistency ultimately proved his downfall as Klopp’s project at Anfield edged closer towards Premier League title contention.
Alisson’s introduction has now been deemed the long-awaited business capable of helping the Reds take a defining step up.
He’s been an admirable servant to the club since signing from Sunderland in 2013, but now feels like the right time for Mignolet to move on.
