Liverpool have stepped up their interest in Barcelona’s unsettled goalkeeper Marc Andre-ter Stegen after Luis Enrique left the Germany international out of last month’s FIFA Club World Cup victories over Guangzhou Evergrande and River Plate.

It was recently reported, by Spanish newspaper Marca, that Ter Stegen was considering leaving the Camp Nou after Enrique opted for Claudio Bravo - Barça’s goalkeeper for La Liga matches - instead.

It’s understood the surprise snub has ‘angered’ Ter Stegen, who helped Barcelona win both the Copa del Rey and the Champions League last season. And now, according to RMC Sport’s chief football editor Mohamed Bouhafsi, Liverpool have made contact with the player’s entourage.

Bouhafsi, according to the Telegraph, was the journalist who broke the news of Anthony Martial’s transfer from AS Monaco to Manchester United and Angel di Maria’s move to Paris Saint-Germain, so there is likely to be something in this report.

Jurgen Klopp insists he is happy with Simon Mignolet as his first-choice goalkeeper but if the opportunity to sign Ter Stegen arises, it would be a surprise if the Liverpool boss turns it down.

Ter Stegen would be an upgrade on Mignolet

Ter Stegen, 23, is one of the world’s best young goalkeepers and Barcelona will be reluctant to let him go.

However, if Ter Stegen believes his 32-year-old teammate Bravo will remain the club’s first-choice keeper for the foreseeable future then there’s a real chance he will ask to leave the Camp Nou at the end of the season.

News that Liverpool have made contact with the German’s representatives will heap pressure on Mignolet, who has been far from convincing in recent weeks.
