Alex Manninger: Chance to impress Liverpool

Liverpool are reportedly considering offering former Arsenal goalkeeper Alex Manninger a deal after it was revealed he has been training with the club.

The 39-year-old Austrian is a free agent after leaving Bundesliga side Augsburg at the end of last season, and Reds’ boss Jurgen Klopp has given him a chance to impress in preseason at Melwood.

Manninger joined Arsenal in 1997 from SV Salzburg for around £500,000 before going on to make 64 appearances for the Gunners in all competitions.

He has gone on to have a nomadic career since, enjoying spells at Espanyol, Torino, Bologna, Siena, Red Bull Salzburg, Udinese, and Juventus before joining Augsburg.

Should he impress, Manninger will become third choice goalkeeper at Anfield next term behind Simon Mignolet and Loris Karius, with Adam Bogdan expected to leave the club this summer.
