France goalkeeper Steve Mandanda could be set to join Premier League side Liverpool in the January transfer window, reports in France have claimed.

According to the reports, Reds manager Jurgen Klopp doesn't seem too happy with the performances of club No 1 Simon Mignolet, as well as substitute keeper Adam Bogdan, this season.

He is therefore looking at Mandanda to possibly take over the responsibility of being the new No 1 at Anfield for the second half of the season.

French daily Le Phoceen has also claimed Liverpool officials have already started negotiations with Marseille over the transfer of the player in the upcoming transfer window, opening for a month.

The 30-year-old Zaire-born goalkeeper was awarded the Best Goalkeeper of the Ligue 1 for his performances with Marseille last season. Mandanda kept 12 clean sheets and conceded just 42 times from 38 games in the French league last season.

Mandanda, who has appeared 20 times for the French national team so far, sees his current contract with Marseille expiring at the end of next season.

Liverpool are currently 10th in the Premier League, and have conceded 22 goals in 18 games, the third-highest among the top 10 teams as on 29 December.
