Liverpool have reportedly been approached by Besiktas over the availability of Belgium international goalkeeper Simon Mignolet, according to Sky Sports.

The Premier League side, who have signed five new players so far this transfer window – Fabinho (AS Monaco), Naby Keita (RB Leipzig), Xherdan Shaqiri (Stoke City), Alisson Becker (AS Roma) and Isaac Christie-Davies (Chelsea) – have been linked with offloading the out of favour shot stopper this summer.

The 30-year-old, who has 21 international caps for his country, kept seven clean sheets in 22 appearances in all competitions for The Reds last season.

Mignolet, who arrived at Anfield back in June 2013 following his reported £9m move from Sunderland, has recorded 66 shut outs in 202 games overall for the Merseyside outfit.

He was part of Belgium’s FIFA World Cup squad at this summer’s finals in Russia, though he failed to make an appearance.

The report claims Besiktas have made contact with Liverpool over a deal for the Belgian, who could be available for transfer following the world record £67m arrival of Alisson from AS Roma earlier this month.

Turkish club Besiktas are on the lookout for a new ‘keeper after selling Fabri to fellow Premier League side Fulham for £5m last week.

Mignolet is contracted at Anfield until June 2021, and is valued at £9m.

Liverpool have completed 17 deals so far this transfer window, including five signings.
