Brendan Rodgers looks to renew his interest in Swansea City goalkeeper Michel Vorm this summer, as reports this weekend suggest.
“With Liverpool back in the Champions League, Rodgers thinks there is a need for a second senior No.1 at Anfield. Vorm would jump at a move to Merseyside and the chance to compete for first-team action – and Mignolet will benefit from the challenge.”
The reported fee for the Dutchman varies from £5 million (Daily Mail) to £7 million (Mirror), and would represent a small portion of the £60 million Rodgers has been given to reinforce his squad.
This is not the first time Rodgers has reportedly looked at the Dutch shot-stopper in this time with Liverpool, with links going back to early 2013 (Liverpool Echo), at which time the 30-year-old admitted “A reunion with Rodgers would be special.”
Vorm has made 26 league appearances for the Swans this season, keeping seven clean sheets; he is an agile shot-stopper who is also adept with the ball at his feet.
Last summer, Liverpool were linked with Aston Villa’s Shay Given, and this suggests Rodgers wants competition between his goalkeepers—something which current back-up Brad Jones can’t offer.
