Liverpool chasing bargain transfer solution to growing Anfield concern

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is looking back towards Germany as worries regarding goalkeeper Simon Mignolet mount at Anfield with reports from SportBild claiming that Cologne’s Timo Horn is a £7m target.

The Reds’ Belgian No.1 has been a source of concern for some time among fans of the Merseyside club who have grown frustrated with his wayward distribution and numerous errors.

His latest blunder came in the defeat at Crystal Palace on Sunday as he palmed Scott Dann’s header back into his path, allowing the defender to knock home the winning goal.

And with this fresh in Klopp’s memory, reports claim that Horn is a target ahead of January.

The 22-year-old German stopper is highly-rated in the Bundesliga and his £6.4m release clause is sure to make him all the more appealing given speculated prices for other rumoured options.

Horn has made 45 BuLi appearances since his debut in 2012 and has been capped on four occasions at U-21 international level.
