Barcelona goalkeeper Marc Andre Ter Stegen plots exit, and Liverpool must not hang about

Goalkeeping Gloves

Why Liverpool should move for Marc Andre Ter Stegen of Barcelona.

If Liverpool learned one thing in their defeat against Watford it is that Adam Bogdan is not up to the standard required by the club.

He was standing in for first choice Simon Mignolet, who has failed to convince since signing for the club, despite a few good runs of form.

A shake up is needed and Jurgen Klopp at the very least needs to bring in competition for Mignolet, and he should look in the direction of Barcelona stopper Marc Andre Ter Stegen.

Klopp's fellow German is planning an exit from Barcelona, report Marca, fed up with his lack of game time at the club.

Chile's Claudio Bravo was bought in the same summer, and he is the one who has established himself as first choice successor to Victor Valdes.

Marca report that Ter Stegen has been angered by the fact he did not play at least one game of the FIFA Club World Cup and barely celebrated the club's trophy win.

Ter Stegen arrived in Spain regarded as one of the best goalkeepers in Germany, and had been expected to shine at Barcelona, but manager Luis Enrique - who did not sign him, had other ideas.

Liverpool would be a good choice for the 23-year-old given their stature, and the chance to work with Klopp.

He would also be available at an affordable price, and Liverpool should not waste time in trying to sign him.
