Liverpool set to sign Simon Mignolet
Although the Anfield club have offered £8m and Sunderland’s asking price is £10m, an agreement is expected to be reached in the coming days.
The 24-year-old has played 101 games since joining from Belgian club St Truiden for £2m in June 2010.
Liverpool’s current first-choice keeper Pepe Reina, 30, has been linked with a move to Spanish champions Barcelona.
The Reds have already agreed to sign Manchester City defender Kolo Toure on a free transfer and Celta Vigo striker Iago Aspas for £7m.
