Liverpool alerted by potential availability of unhappy Barcelona star

Liverpool have been alerted by the possible availability of Marc-Andre ter Stegen, who is frustrated with life in Barcelona, according to reports from the Independent.

Ter Stegen was signed by the Catalans in the summer of 2014 to become now-Manchester United goalkeeper Victor Valdes’ long-term successor, but the Germany international has fallen behind the pecking order to Claudio Bravo in the Barca goal.

And according to Spanish magazine Marca, the 23-year-old is considering a move away from the Nou Camp in order to play regular first-team football after being snubbed for the Club World Cup last week.

The news has come of interest for Liverpool fans, who have urged Reds manager Jurgen Klopp to go out and inquire on Ter Stegen’s availability.

Liverpool number-one Simon Mignolet and back-up Adam Bogdan have been behind a few goalkeeping mishaps this season, and despite Klopp’s backing, are set to be on the chopping block come January.

The former Borussia Monchengladbach ace has only played four La Liga games this term, keeping two clean sheets.
