Mignolet is now unlikely to play for the Reds again after Alisson completed his £68million move to Anfield.

Despite his numerous recent blunders – including two in the Champions League final – Loris Karius is also above Mignolet in the pecking order.

The Belgian stopper would not be signed as first-choice at Barca though – with Marc-Andre ter Stegen holding that mantle.

However, Barcelona see him as a fine understudy to the German with Cillessen on the way out.

Simon Mignolet would replace Jasper Cillessen – who is set to leave this summer

The Dutch keeper is tipped to leave the Nou Camp this window after growing frustrated with his lack of first-team action – playing just twice last term in La Liga.

Marca now claim Mignolet tops Barcelona’s list of back-up goalkeepers – with Wolfsburg’s Koen Casteels and Borussia Monchengladbach’s Yann Sommer also featuring.

Should the deal go ahead Liverpool’s goalkeeping revolution will be well underway.

As well as signing Alisson for a world-record fee for a No1, the Reds have sold Danny Ward to Leicester in a £12.5m deal.
