Besiktas are reportedly lining up a £12m approach for out-of-favour Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet as a replacement for Fabri, who has joined Fulham.

Besiktas have reportedly identified Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet as a potential replacement for Fabri.

The Turkish outfit are on the lookout for a new shot-stopper after selling Fabri to Fulham on Tuesday, and believe that Mignolet could be an ideal option between the sticks.

The Belgium international lost his place in the Liverpool team to Loris Karius last season and has since fallen further down the pecking order following the world-record arrival of Alisson Becker from Roma.

TalkSPORT reports that Besiktas are ready to make a £12m bid for the 30-year-old goalkeeper, who is understood to be eager to leave Anfield in search of more regular first team football.

Karius has also been linked with a move away from the Anfield outfit, while Danny Ward has already joined Leicester City in a £12.5m deal.

Liverpool could be reluctant to let Mignolet leave if they are able to garner a sizeable sum for Karius, although manager Jurgen Klopp has insisted that the German does still have a future at the club.
