Liverpool in advanced talks to secure 28-year-old transfer - report

By Dominic Toner

Liverpool goalkeeper Adam Bogdan is in advanced talks to join Wigan, according to a report.

Bogdan is heading for the Anfield exit door just 12 months after joining on a free transfer from Bolton.

The Mail claim that the goalkeeper is currently discussing a move to Wigan, who were promoted to the Championship last season.

Bogdan, 28, was in goal for the Merseysiders’ final Premier League match of 2015-16 but he has dropped to fourth in the keeper roster following the signing of Loris Karius.

He was axed from Liverpool’s Europa League squad in January in favour of rookie Danny Ward, who was recalled from a loan spell at Aberdeen.

Ward is now set to join Huddersfield on loan next season even though he has been handed a new five-year deal at Anfield.

But Jurgen Klopp will allow Bogdan to leave because he already has a third keeper lined up in former Arsenal man Alex Manninger, 39, who is undergoing a trial with Liverpool.

If Bogdan’s proposed move to Wigan goes through he would be joining up with former Bolton team-mate Jussi Jaaskelainen, and the pair would compete with the clubs other goalkeeper Lee Nicholls for a starting spot.

Although Jurgen Klopp is currently dealing with a major reshuffle in the goalkeeping department, he has also been busy recruiting outfield players with Sadio Mane, Joel Matip and Marko Grujic all joining Liverpool this window.
