Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is ready with a bid for Sunderland goalkeeper Simon Mignolet.

The People says Rodgers is to launch a £6.5million bid for Sunderland goalkeeper Mignolet.

Rodgers is on the lookout for a new stopper to replace Pepe Reina, who is set to leave Anfield this summer. He has the green light to make a formal offer. It is great news for the Reds boss, who has moved early in the transfer window with swoops for defender Kolo Toure and Celta Vigo forward Iago Aspas.
