Liverpool’s £10million bid for Barcelona goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen has been rejected, according to reports from the Independent.
Despite tying down Simon Mignolet to a new contract, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is hopeful of bringing in a new goalkeeper during the January transfer window and it is widely believed that the German has his eyes set on securing the services of Marc-Andre ter Stegen.
Ter Stegen has largely played second fiddle to Claudio Bravo since joining Barcelona at the start of last season and as a result, the goalkeeper is said to be keen on a move away from the Nou Camp in order to earn regular first team football.
Klopp is a keen admirer of ter Stegen’s abilities and reportedly placed a bid for the goalkeeper recently. As a blow to Liverpool’s hopes of signing ter Stegen though, it has been revealed by the Independent that Barcelona have rejected the Reds’ offer which was around £10million and the reports add that the Catalan giants are only willing to allow the 23-year old to leave for bids in excess of £20million.
