Michel Vorm's agent plays down Liverpool transfer link

Published Add your comment

The agent of Swansea City goalkeeper Michel Vorm has played down speculation linking his client with a summer move to Liverpool, dismissing rumours that the Dutchman has already been approached by the Merseyside club.

According to the South Wales Evening Post, the 30-year-old stopper could leave the Liberty Stadium in a £5 million deal this summer, with the Reds thought to be leading the race for the Swans star's signature.

Simon Mignolet enjoyed an impressive debut season at Anfield in 2013/14, but with veteran custodian Pepe Reina set to leave Liverpool permanently following his return from a season-long loan spell at Napoli, Brendan Rodgers is keen to add fresh competition for the Belgium international ahead of the new campaign.

Vorm has been a standout performer for Swansea since moving to the Welsh club from FC Utrecht in 2011. He was actually recruited by the current Liverpool boss during his time in charge of the Swans, before leaving to join the Reds in 2012.

Rodgers might be planning a reunion with Vorm on Merseyside, but he is yet to formally approach the Holland international goalkeeper about the prospect of a transfer this summer.

"We don't know. There is nothing concrete at the moment," confirmed his representative Wessel Weezenberg when contacted by the Evening Post.

Vorm still has two years to run on his existing Swansea contract, but would likely find it difficult to turn down the chance of joining Liverpool.

Despite continued speculation, his current focus is on preparations for the 2014 World Cup, having recently joined up with Louis van Gaal's squad at a training camp in Portugal before jetting off to Brazil next month.
