That restricted Mignolet, with 204 appearances for the Reds, to just 180 minutes last season and despite having two years left on his contract the Belgium global wants to play first-team football.

There have been suggestions that Mignolet could seek an exit this summer, with reports suggesting Crystal Palace were considering a swoop.

Mignolet did not see a single minute of Premier League action in 2018-19, with Alisson proving to be an ever-present as he collected the Golden Glove in his debut campaign. With first-team chances unlikely next season unless Alisson gets injured, Mignolet has to make a career-defining choice.

But Klopp has poured cold water on the rumours, insisting the 31-year-old is happy at Liverpool.

"I have had many conversations with him". Before we left [for the summer break] we had a talk.

AFCON: Algeria down Eagles 2-1 to reach final
Algeria beat Nigeria 2-1 in the dying minutes of the game, by an unbelievable free kick goal by Riyad Mahrez. Then, in a 60-second purple patch, Mbaye Niang and Mane were unable to convert chances before a small crowd.

"I would say, yes (he will stay)".

The 35-year old, who was released from Middlesbrough at the end of his one year contract, is set to join up with Jurgen Klopp's side this week, as they travel to the United States for pre-season.

"That's a very good situation for the club, a situation I think you should have, and that's why everything is fine from my point of view".

"At a club like Liverpool you need two number ones, at least, in the club". The Brazilian star is an immediate fan favourite at Anfield and he will continue to take his place between the sticks for Klopp's side.

But if he wants to leave, Klopp probably needs to buy a new goalkeeper. However, this does place Mignolet in a hard situation who may now be forced to act himself individually in potentially securing a move if he still wants first-team football for the 2019/20 campaign. Caoimhin Kelleher, 20, is a promising young goalkeeper but he is inexperienced and now injured.
