Ex-Arsenal goalkeeper Manninger eyeing Liverpool move

Alex Manninger, the 39-year-old Austrian who used to backup David Seaman at Arsenal in the late 1990s, is now training with Liverpool - and looks set to sign a contract to become our third choice stopper behind Simon Mignolet and Loris Karius.

Summer recruit Loris Karius and Simon Mignolet are expected to fight for the number-one jersey at Anfield next season while Adam Bogdan is seemingly free to go.

According to the Daily Express, the 39-year-old is hoping to impress Klopp enough in training to be offered a short-term deal with the Merseyside club, having spent last season playing for Bundesliga side Augsburg and making just two appearances.

Liverpool are looking for a new third-choice goalkeeper with Welsh global Danny Ward set to join Huddersfield on loan for the 2016/17 season.

Manninger joined Arsenal in 1997 from SV Salzburg for around £500,000 before going on to make 64 appearances for the Gunners in all competitions.

Wigan Athletic are interested in acquiring the Hungarian, whom Ward overtook in the pecking order last season, and if Manninger impresses he could subsequently be in line for a short-term contract.
