Napoli reportedly face a race against time if they are to sign Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet this summer.

The Belgium international has been left as the third choice under Jurgen Klopp following Alisson’s then-record arrival from Roma.

Now, The Sun claims that Serie A giants Napoli are in talks over a move for the 30-year-old as their No.1 Alex Meret broke his arm.

However, the transfer window shuts on Friday in Italy, meaning they will have to act fast.

“We are in discussions with Napoli, but there is no agreement yet,” Mignolet’s agent Nico Vaesen confirmed.

“In the end it is in their interest to find a solution.

“Liverpool want to keep Simon, but he wants to play in matches – and he should. He deserves to play for a big club.

“Simon is the best option for Napoli in terms of quality, even though there is a financial aspect to it.”
