Frustrated Liverpool star hints at potential summer exit

Liverpool back-up goalkeeper Simon Mignolet has given an update on his long-term future at the club.

The Belgium international, who has been the chief support act for Alisson all season, has made only two appearances for the Reds this campaign – both in cup competitions.

And speaking while away on international duty, the 31-year-old admits that he needs more game time at this stage of his career – although his contract situation continues to tie him to Anfield at the present time, as reported on Sport Witness.

Speaking to TV Limburg, via Walfoot, the stopper said: “This season, it was something quite easy to accept, but, obviously, I’d like to play. That’s why I keep working every day and try to keep on going on this path.

“I don’t know if an exit is possible this summer, I still have two years left on my contract. For now, I’m focused on Liverpool and Belgium games. We’ll see later.”

Mignolet’s future also depends on what Liverpool decide to do with Loris Karius during the summer, with the German currently tied to a two-year loan with Besiktas.

However, there is talk that the Turkish giants are already looking to an alternative to Karius – which may mean Mignolet is allowed to move on, if Klopp decides he can trust Karius as a high-class alternative to Alisson.

Callum Hudson-Odoi, meanwhile, has been told to think carefully before quitting Chelsea this summer, in the wake of reported transfer interest from Liverpool and Manchester United. Read the full story here…
