Liverpool set to offer starring role to £57M Barcelona fringe star

Liverpool are set to offer Marc-Andre Ter Stegen a first-team role to quit Barcelona in January, according to the Metro.

The German goalkeeper has found himself behind Claudio Bravo in the fight for regular football this season, and is currently being linked with a move away from the club.

Reports are claiming Ter Stegen is open to a move to the Premier League, in search of first-team football, and Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is said to be keen on offering him that chance.

The Reds current number one Simon Mignolet has come under scrutiny in the last two seasons, and has so far failed to impress his new manager.

The German goalkeeper is believed to have a £56.8 Million release clause in his contract, and Klopp is said to have urged his hierarchy to make the transfer happen.

How much the club will be willing to pay in order to sign him is unsure at this point, but Barcelona are not expected to be willing to negotiate his sale price.
