Liverpool goalkeeper Adam Bogdan is set to transfer to Championship side Wigan Athletic after failing to impress new boss Jurgen Klopp, according to ESPN.

Bogdan moved to Liverpool last summer on a free transfer after spending eight years with former side Bolton Wanderers, leaving the club after being dislodged as the club’s starting number one by Andy Lonergan.


Bogdan, 28, was signed by then Reds manager Brendan Rodgers as an understudy to Simon Mignolet, but was given a shot in the starting line-up after a number of high profile errors from the Belgian goalie persuaded Jurgen Klopp to give the Hungarian a first-team opportunity.

He couldn’t do any better than his teammate, however, and made big errors during Liverpool’s matches against Watford and Exeter City. He subsequently slipped behind Welshman Danny Ward in the pecking order, and when the signing of German goalie Loris Karius was announced by Liverpool, it seemed only a matter of time before Bogdan  would be parting ways with the Anfield club.

Should Bogdan leave Liverpool, former Arsenal goalkeeper Alex Manninger could be offered a contract after it emerged that the Austrian had been training with the Merseyside club.

Jurgen Klopp has been busy so far in the transfer market, as he looks to shape his squad for the upcoming Premier League season. They have so far signed goalie Karius, Schalke’s former centre-back Joel Matip and Southampton forward Sadio Mane.

Wigan will compete in the Championship after winning promotion from League One, and have signed Dan Burn, Alex Gilbey, Stephen Warnock and Nick Powell as they bid to return to the Premier League.
