Crystal Palace are interested in signing Liverpool keeper Simon Mignolet.
The 31-year old Belgian keeper is set to leave Anfield this summer after a six-year stay which has seen him make more than 150 appearances for the Reds, as he looks for regular first-team football, following the arrival of Alisson Becker at the club.
He is also attracting the attention of Brighton, under their new manager Graham Potter, whilst clubs in France and Germany are also monitoring his position.
Palace are prepared to pay £8 million for Mignolet, has two years left on his current contract at Liverpool, and the Merseyside side are reputed to be trying to recruit Alex McCarthy from Southampton to replace him.
The South London side are looking for somebody who can be their regular keeper. Having started with Wayne Hennessey last season, they finished with Vicente Guaita as first choice between the sticks for them. However, Mignolet would represent a significant upgrade on both of them.
