Liverpool are reported to have opened talks with Sunderland goalkeeper Simon Mignolet over a proposed £9million move.
Reports on Saturday emerged suggesting the two clubs were close to agreeing a fee for the Belgian International and now it looks as though talks with the player could have started.
It is believed that Mignolet has told Black Cats boss Paolo Di Canio he will not sign a new contract at the Stadium of Light and wants to leave in order to boost his 2014 World Cup ambitions.
Liverpool are on the look out for a new goalkeeper as doubts surround the future of Pepe Reina and Mignolet now appears to be Brendan Rodgers' number one target.
The Reds have also been linked with Stoke City's Asmir Begovic, but a deal for Mignolet looks to be on the verge of going through.
