Liverpool Transfer News: Reds Target Belgian Ace – Deal Struck For Spanish Forward
Latest Liverpool transfer rumours. Today, the Reds are linked with a move for Sunderland’s £9m-rated keeper Simon Mignolet and agree a deal to sign Iago Aspas.
With the summer transfer window set to open, there is plenty of gossip doing the rounds in the newspapers so we’ll keep you up-to-date with the latest Liverpool transfer rumours. Today, the Reds are linked with Simon Mignolet and agree a deal to sign Iago Aspas.
Reds target Mignolet
First up and Sky Sports are reporting that Liverpool are interested in signing Belgian ace Simon Mignolet but they will have to pay Sunderland around £9m to secure his signature this summer.
The report claims the 25-year-old is becoming unsettled at the Stadium of Light as he wants to move to a bigger club to boost his chances of playing at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil and it seems Liverpool could be in the market for a new goalkeeper given the uncertainty surrounding the future of Pepe Reina.
However, the Black Cats are desperate to hang on to their No.1 – who was their Player of the Year for the 2012/13 season – and Sky Sports suggest they will demand a figure in the region of £9m for the stopper, who has two years to run on his current contract.
Aspas deal agreed
Next up and the club have confirmed on Liverpoolfc.com that a deal has been agreed to sign Spanish forward Iago Aspas from Celta Vigo this summer.
The 25-year-old was a stand-out performer in a team that narrowly avoided relegation from La Liga last term, with his 12 goals in 34 games proving crucial in maintaining Celt’as top flight status for another year.
However, his time in Spain is now coming to an end after Liverpool announced on their website that a deal had been agreed that would see Aspas move to Anfield this summer, subject to documentation being completed.
Aspas is a versatile attacker who can play through the middle or out wide so will give Brendan Rodgers plenty of options up front next season and he becomes the clubs second signing behind defender Kolo Toure.
