Should Liverpool make a bid to reunite Tottenham's Michel Vorm with Rodgers?

Michel Vorm

Michel Vorm has barely played for Tottenham this season - could Liverpool sign him?

It's hardly a secret that Liverpool are in the market for a new goalkeeper during this month's transfer window.

Simon Mignolet's troubles between the sticks let to him being dropped in December, but with his replacement Brad Jones picking up a thigh injury on Boxing Day against Burnley, Mignolet has been recalled to the starting line-up.

The Belgian continues to look shaky though, and despite the clean sheet at Sunderland on Saturday, manager Brendan Rodgers is still expected to pursue a new shot stopper.

The likes of Neto (Fiorentina), Mattia Perin (Genoa) and Sergio Romero (Sampdoria) have all been linked with moves to Merseyside, but could Rodgers look closer to home?

Rumours over the summer suggested that the Reds were interested in signing goalkeeper Michel Vorm from Swansea City, with the Dutchman a firm favourite under Rodgers during his spell in charge at the Liberty Stadium.

However, Vorm signed for Tottenham instead, in a deal which saw Gylfi Sigurdsson head back to South Wales. The inclusion of the Icelandic playmaker may have swung the move in Tottenham's favour, but can Liverpool still sign Vorm?

The 31-year-old was signed as a backup to Hugo Lloris at White Hart Lane, and possibly even a contingency plan in case Lloris left the club.

Yet with Spurs adamant that the French international won't be sold, Vorm has played just six times this season, with all of those appearances coming in cup competitions.

Vorm is too good to be such a bit-part figure, and with Liverpool desperately needing a goalkeeper, it may well be worth seeing if Tottenham would be willing to part with Vorm this month.

Rodgers needs a goalkeeper he can trust given Mignolet's struggles, and there are few that he would be willing to rely on more than Vorm after their successful time at Swansea together.

It would be interesting to see whether Tottenham would sell Vorm at all, never mind to a rival - but Liverpool need a goalkeeper, and may be willing to pay big money to get one.

If that's the case, then Liverpool may well be tempted to target Vorm, Tottenham may well be tempted to let him leave if they do.
