Liverpool plot £7m summer bid for Michel Vorm

Liverpool appear to be seeking competition for Simon Mignolet, with reports suggesting that the club are set to make a summer bid for Swansea goalkeeper Michel Vorm.

According to The Sunday People, the Reds - whose faint hopes of winning the 2013/14 Premier League title were ended on the last day of the season - are poised to make an offer of approximately £7 million for a player of whom Brendan Rodgers is believed to be a long-term admirer.

Liverpool only signed Mignolet from Sunderland prior to the start of last season, with the Belgian's arrival at Anfield allowing long-term number one Pepe Reina to join Serie A outfit Napoli on a season-long loan deal.

Mignolet's time at the club to date certainly hasn't been entirely error-free, but it would perhaps be unfair to suggest that his place is under threat after just one solitary campaign on Merseyside.

However, with Reina widely expected to depart the club this summer, there is surely no doubting that Liverpool need to upgrade their back-up options with Australian Brad Jones unlikely to challenge for a starting role.

Indeed, Rodgers should be very familiar with Vorm's talents, with the 30-year-old having proved instrumental during his time in charge of Swansea.

Dutch international Vorm's importance at the Liberty Stadium may make it somewhat difficult for Liverpool to get their man, one would assume, and it remains to be seen if £7 million will be enough to entice the Welsh club into selling.

Indeed, questions must also surely be raised about Vorm's happiness at potentially moving to a club where he may well not be first choice.
