Liverpool are pondering making a move Hull City’s David Marshall in case they lose Simon Mignolet in the summer, according to Alan Nixon. 

The reliable journalist claims that the Reds are looking at Hull City’s number one as a potential replacement for Mignolet, who could be on his way out this summer.

In a tweet posted from his personal Twitter account, Nixon said: “LIVERPOOL. Looking at a move for Marshall at HULL if lose Mignolet”

OPINION

On the face of it, this move seems a little bit strange. However, if Mignolet, who is currently on a whopping £60,000-per week (Source: Spotrac) proceeds to leave the club in the summer, then Jurgen Klopp will have to look elsewhere for a back-up keeper, and it seems he may be interested in the Scottish Championship stopper. The former Celtic man has had a good season with Hull, and been their number one all season with no real competition, and surely a move to Anfield would be a dream move for the player, if you take away the fact that he most probably wouldn’t be getting too much game time. The 34-year old is out of contract this summer, so would be arriving on Merseyside for free, which would arguably be a pretty good deal for the Reds, assuming Marshall was happy with being in the reserves for the most part of his time with the club, which is more than likely.
