Liverpool and Belgium goalkeeper Simon Mignolet is believed to be a transfer target for Barcelona, who are said to be seeking a replacement for Jasper Cillessen.

Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet has emerged as a shock transfer target for Barcelona, according to a report.

Last season, Mignolet lost his first-team spot to Loris Karius, and Alisson Becker's move to Anfield is likely to push the Belgium international further down the pecking order.

Barca, meanwhile, have reportedly resigned themselves to losing Jasper Cillessen and are thought to be seeking a new keeper to challenge Marc-Andre ter Stegen for the number one jersey.

According to Spanish outlet Marca, Mignolet tops a list that includes fellow Belgian Koen Casteels of Wolfsburg, Borussia Monchengladbach keeper Yann Sommer, Real Sociedad stopper Geronimo Rulli and Eibar custodian Marko Dmitrovic.

Mignolet, 30, joined Liverpool in the summer of 2013 from Sunderland and has made 200 appearances in five seasons at the club.
