Simon Mignolet looks set to depart from Liverpool this summer after his entourage revealed the sho-stopper was desperate to play regular football next season.

The 31-year-old star spent last campaign providing back-up to Brazil international Alisson Becker, while the previous two seasons before that saw the Belgian battle it out with German keeper Loris Karius to start between the sticks.

He became the Reds’ first choice after joining from the Fellow English club Sunderland for £9m back in 2013, but has fallen down the pecking order in the latest years.

And it seems Simon is keen to get out of Anfield to restart his professional career this summer, according to his representative, the former Crystal Palace custodian Nico Vaesen .

“The goalkeeper game of musical chairs hasn’t started yet,” Nico told Le Sport Plus.

“It’s important for Simon to play somewhere, and our goal is still to make him leave. He’s still got a lot to offer, and if we have an offer, we’re counting on Liverpool making an effort.”

Though he is angling for a transfer away this summer, Mignolet is set to be handed plenty of game time in the pre-season campaign by Liverpool.

siAlisson Becker is currently still away from the club and enjoying some down time after helping his country win the Copa America earlier this month, while third-choice keeper Caoimhin Kelleher is recovering from wrist surgery.

Polish talent Kamil Grabara has signed for Huddersfield on a season-long loan and such is Liverpool’s stopper crisis, they have had to draft free agent Andy Lonergan into their roster for their pre-season trip to the USA.
