Five possible candidates to replace Simon Mignolet at Liverpool

Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet is under scrutiny following his current performances this season.

The Belgium international has been struggling since he joined the Reds from Sunderland in 2013.

During the last game against Ludogorets, the 26 year old shot-stopper was at fault for conceding the goal. Now the time has arrived for the Anfield club to cut their losses by replacing their goalkeeper.

Here are the five candidates, who can fill Mignolet’s shoes at the Anfield.

Norberto Murara Neto – Fiorentina

The Brazilian goalkeeper Neto, who plays for Serie A club Fiorentina has been under Liverpool’s radar since the 2014/15 season started.

Neto, 25, will be a free agent at the end of the season and would be available on the cheap in the coming transfer window – January.

Petr Cech – Chelsea

The Czech international, who is now Chelsea’s number 1 goalkeeper – has been in sensational form this season and he is keen for regular football at another club.

Cech, 32, has been good at commanding the box. He is a three-time golden glove winner and has kept a club record 220 clean sheets for the west London club in all competitions.

Fraser Forster – Southampton

The England international, who plays for Southampton, has got the most number of clean sheets in this Premier League season.

Forster, 26, who joined the Saints from Celtic at the start of the season, have earned a call to the English National team following with his excellent performance between the sticks.

Asmir Begovic – Stoke City

The Bosnian international, who plays for Premier League side Stoke City, has established himself as one of the best goalkeepers in English football, especially during the windy conditions at the Britannia Stadium.

Begovic, 27, was heavily linked with Liverpool but due to some reasons they ended up getting Mignolet.

Kevin Trapp – Eintracht Frankfurt

The German international, who plays for Bundesliga club Eintracht Frankfurt. He is considered to be one of the best penalty savers in the German League.

Trapp, 23, has never played outside his country but Liverpool could take a risk of buying him, who could be available on the cheap.
