AFC Bournemouth eyes £15m move for Liverpool goalkeeper
AFC Bournemouth are reportedly keen on signing Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet this summer, but it could cost the club around £15m to lure him away from Anfield.
Mignolet looks somewhat surplus to requirement at the Anfield and has found playing time hard to come by this season, being limited to just two appearances this year following the arrival of Alisson Becker from AS Roma.
Alisson has been in brilliant form throughout the season for the Reds, conceding just 34 goals in 50 appearances while having 26 clean sheets to his name.
With that in mind, it seems highly unlikely that Mignolet’s situation is going to change at the club anytime soon, and if he is eager to secure regular playing time, he might need to consider joining another club elsewhere.
As noted by Caught Offside, Bournemouth could offer him the chance of that, but it’s noted that it will cost them £15m to prize him away from the Merseyside giants. You can get the best odds guaranteed for upcoming Bournemouth transfers via online casinos usa.
Arsenal, via some Arsenal Blogs, are also considering a summer move for the goalkeeper as a potential replacement to departing Petr Cech.

For now, though, the club are no looking at any transfer decisions as they have a crunch Champions League final against Tottenham in Madrid to consider this weekend, and that will be the club’s top priority this week as opposed to making plans for the summer transfer window.
