Liverpool could make a surprise move for Victor Valdes, who is still a free agent after leaving Barcelona at the end of last season.

The Daily Mirror reports, explaining that manager Brendan Rodgers views the 32-year-old Spaniard as a strong candidate to provide competition to current number one Simon Mignolet.

These reports follow further news of Sergio Romero’s potential move from Sampdoria, with the Argentine thought to be in talks with the Anfield club over a £1.6m switch.

Valdes saw his seemingly inevitable move to Monaco breakdown earlier this summer due to a serious knee injury, but having now recovered, it is possible that he could take the place of his compatriot Pepe Reina on Merseyside.

After making 535 appearances in 12 seasons with the Spanish giants, Valdes is on the hunt for a fresh challenge. The keeper, capped 20 times by his country, is hoping to join a big club, and is prepared to wait in order to secure the best possible move.

“He can sign a contract at any time and I am convinced that we will see Valdes at a big team before Christmas”, his agent Gines Carvajal told Cadena Ser.
