Chief among Liverpool's continued transfer missteps in the past couple of years has been the signing of Adam Bogdan. The Hungarian - more stooper than stopper - was snapped up on a free transfer by Brendan Rodgers following the questionable achievement of being relegated to League One with Bolton Wanderers.
Bogdan arrived and managed the rather stupefying achievement of ensuring Simon Mignolet was undroppable, partly through howlers like this against Exeter City in the FA Cup:
Bogdan is at best third-choice at Liverpool at the moment, following the signing of German 'keeper/Harry Potter spell Loris Karius and the continued employment of Simon Mignolet (Danny Ward has been loaned to Huddersfield), but that looks set to change, with the news that Jurgen Klopp is considering giving a contract to 39-year-old Alex Manninger, formerly of Arsenal.
Manninger spent last season with Augsburg in Germany - who lost to Liverpool in the knockout stages of the Europa League - but has been taken on trial by Klopp, with Paul Joyce of the Express reporting that the Liverpool manager is considering awarding him with a one-year contract.
Manninger was David Seaman's understudy at Arsenal between 1997 and 2002, with the Austrian winning the double in 1998. He made 30 Arsenal appearances in that time.
Wigan are believed to be interested in Bogdan.
