Victor Valdes still a target for Liverpool

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is seeking to bring in competition for Simon Mignolet - and he’s turned his attention to former-Barcelona stopper Victor Valdes.

According to the Daily Star, the 32-year-old has emerged as a prime candidate to provide a real threat to Mignolet’s place at Anfield. Rodgers believes he can get a deal done, although the Spain international is likely to have sizeable wage demands.

Pepe Reina out

Rodgers has just offloaded one highly paid back-up in Pepe Reina, and it’s unlikely that he’ll want to swap that Spaniard for the other.

But if he can get him in on the right wage deal it will represent a huge coup for the club, as Valdes is available for nothing following the expiration of his Barcelona contract.

Monaco move collapsed

The 32-year-old international was expected to join Monaco having left Barcelona over the summer, but the transfer collapsed due to the player’s knee injury, which he suffered just prior to the end of the campaign.

He should be fully fit before the January transfer window and his agent believes it is only a matter of time before a top-tier club offers his player a contract.

Big club calling

“He can sign a contract at any time and I am convinced that we will see Valdes at a big team before Christmas,” Gines Carvajal, Valdes’s agent, told Cadena Ser.

Valdes is unattached which means he can sign for a club at any point. Liverpool may wait until he’s fully recovered before deciding to commit resources to the stopper though.
