Liverpool fans everywhere know that, although Brad Jones has the no.1 jersey, he can't hold a torch to Simon Mignolet. The Belgian has been an instant success since his arrival from Sunderland in the summer but, to keep any goalkeeper at the top of their game, some competition for that starting spot is necessary. Just look at Joe Hart's dramatic dip in form at Man City; without a credible replacement, goalies can get lazy and assume their place is a given.

However, Liverpool can avoid the mistakes of City and bring in a highly-rated young goalkeeper to keep Mignolet on his toes, whilst also flicking the bird at arch rivals Man United. Ron Robert Zieler, Hannover 96's 24 year old shot-stopper and a one-time United reject, has blossomed since moving to the Bundesliga in 2010.

Over the last three years Zieler has matured into one of the best goalies in the division and is open to moving away from his current club. Although Schalke have made enquiries and can offer a substantial wage increase as well as Champions League football, Liverpool should steal a march on the Germans and sound out Zieler for a move immediately.
