Bundesliga giants wants to add reinforcements in key areas and wants to sign a new goalkeeper to provide competition to their current number one Roman Burki. They are interested in Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet, but will have to pay £10 million for his services, the Sun reports.

Simon Mignolet joined Liverpool from Sunderland for a reported fee of £9 million on a five-year contract in the summer of 2013. He has made just over 200 appearances for the club in all competitions.

The 30 year old has often been criticized for his inconsistent performances since joining the Reds. He was a regular in the earlier stages of the season but after a number of errors he lost his place to Karius, who has since impressed under Jurgen Klopp.

The Belgian International hasn’t featured in the Premier League since the New Year’s day and has been heavily linked with a summer exit.

The Premier League giants are now ready to sell him to Dortmund but wants around £10 million, a fee which the German club are ready to pay to secure his services.
