Simon Mignolet is facing an uncertain future at Liverpool with manager Jurgen Klopp publicly declaring Loris Karius as his number one goalkeeper. With a crucial Champions League tie against Porto this week, a report in The Guardian is suggesting that Mignolet will once again miss out. What Are The Odds looks at Simon Mignolet next club odds as 29-year old faces up to an Anfield exit.
Simon Mignolet divided opinion among Liverpool fans but nevertheless has pulled on the Liverpool jersey over 150 times since joining from Sunderland back in 2013. With the keeper still in his prime there’s likely to be no shortage of interested clubs in wanting the 20-times capped Belgian international.
The favourites at this time are Napoli at 7/2 (4.50) which is interesting as former Reds keeper Pepe Reina is their number one, but it’s long been speculated that he will leave the Italian giants who are battling for the Serie A title this season. With Reina pushing 36-years old the Italians might see Mignolet as the ideal successor.
Newcastle are an intriguing frontrunner to be Simon Mignolet’s next club, having just signed Martin Dúbravka on-loan and with an option to buy at the end of the season it would be tough to imagine the Magpies shelling out on two goalkeepers who would both expect to be number one pick. Odds of 16/1 (17.0) reflect that this is a transfer that is a bit unlikely, but if Dúbravka doesn’t convince by the season’s end then a move for Mignolet could escalate.
Could Celtic convince Mignolet to make the move to Scotland? The opportunity to help Brendan Rodgers’s side in the Champions League next season as well as pretty much guaranteed silverware with the Glasgow side could be a major draw, but again long odds of 16/1 (17.0) suggest there’s work to be done on the transfer front. However, having worked for Rodgers while at Liverpool there could be something to this link.
There’s a long way to go until the summer transfer window opens so What Are The Odds will monitor the Simon Mignolet next club odds market through until the end of the season.
