Sky Sports are claiming Liverpool are interested in signing Sunderland keeper Simon Mignolet with the Black Cats looking for at least £9m for the Belgium international. The Reds could be in need of a new custodian given that speculation continues to link their current No.1, Jose Reina, with Barcelona.

The 25-year-old has only two years remaining on his contract and Sunderland will know his value will decrease as time drags on.
