Report: Liverpool launch £19million bid for ter Stegen

Marc-Andre ter Stegen: Barcelona keeper linked with Liverpool and Man City

Liverpool have reportedly made a £19million approach to Barcelona in a bid to bring goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen to Anfield this summer.

The Germany international has been unsettled at the Nou Camp for some time now, as he has surprisingly failed to establish himself as the club’s number one, with coach Luis Enrique often opting for Claudio Bravo.

Current Liverpool No 1 Simon Mignolet recently signed a new long-term deal with Liverpool, while manager Jurgen Klopp has often gone out of his way to insist he is not in the market for a new goalkeeper.

Nonetheless, reports in Spain suggest Klopp remains keen to bring in the former Borussia Monchengladbach keeper, with Don Balon claiming the Reds have made them an offer.

The paper also suggests the German could come under the radar of incoming Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola, who wants to replace the inconsistent Willie Caballero as Joe Hart’s understudy, though no bid has been made by the Blues.

Barcelona are loathe to lose the goalkeeper, despite him starting just four La Liga matches for the club during his time at the Nou Camp.
