Anfield boss Brendan Rodgers is seemingly not all that happy with the form displayed by his first choice custodian Simon Mignolet and may feel that Neto is a sensible target to either replace or challenge the Belgian for his starting spot.

Mignolet has managed to collect just two clean sheets in his last 19 Liverpool appearances and is certainly under pressure having not hit the level of form he reached during his time at Sunderland.

Neto’s good form helped Fiorentina secure a fourth place finish last season and the former Atlético Paranaense goalie has continued to impress this term, conceding just six goals in eight Serie A starts.

Now on the fringes of a first senior Brazil national team cap the 25 year old may feel a high-profile move to Liverpool could help in pursuit of international recognition though Viola boss Vincenzo Montella is sure to fight hard to keep hold of the keeper.
