Will Liverpool now sign a new goalkeeper?

The Premier League transfer window closes on Thursday.

According to the Guardian, Mignolet’s exit from Anfield means that Jurgen Klopp may try to sign a new shot-stopper:

Liverpool will look to sign an experienced replacement as cover for Alisson before the close of the transfer window on Thursday.

For the record, the Guardian failed to mention any names of possible Liverpool targets.
