Reds have been tracking Belgium for some time now.
Liverpool are said to finally be willing to meet Sunderland’s £10 million valuation of their highly rated goalkeeper Simon Mignolet, according to reports in the Sunday Mirror.
The talented Belgium international has been the subject of much talk recently linking the shot stopper with a move to Anfield when the summer transfer window finally swings open into action once again on July 1.
However, as yet the Merseyside giants have failed to meet the Black Cats’ £10m asking price for the 25-year-old, with various bids of £6.5m and then £9m having been turned down by the north-east club.
The Reds, though, are now believed to be willing to stump up the cash to bring the keeper to the club for next season on the back of an outstanding campaign between the sticks for the struggling Premier League outfit last time out, when Mignolet made 40 appearances in all competitions for Sunderland, including 38 in the top flight.
