Adam Bogdan Seeks to End Anfield Hell as Wigan Move Edges Closer

Published on: 11 July 2016

The Hungarian goalkeeper hasn't enjoyedthe best of spells at Liverpool sincejoining the club last summer on a free transferfrom Bolton Wanderers, making just two league appearances for the Reds.

As if his future at Liverpool wasn't already in doubt, costlyslip-ups versus Watford and Exeter made it all themore evident to manager Jurgen Klopp thathe was not the right man for the Reds.

However, the Hungarian now looks to break free from Liverpool, with theDaily Mailreporting that he is now in discussions with Wigan Athletic over a move to the DW Stadium.

WithSimon Mignolet, Danny Ward and new signing Loris Karius standing above Bogdan in the pecking order, a move away from Liverpool isthe best optionfor both parties in this scenario.

Last season,Danny Ward became the new no.2 after being recalled from his loan spell up north with Aberdeen, where he put in a number of impressive performances, earning himself a start for Wales in their Euro 2016 campaign.

However, the young keeperwas loaned out to Championship side Huddersfield Town on Monday, promptly after signing a new long-term deal.

If Bogdan's move to Wigan succeeds, it is assumedthat 39-year-oldformer Arsenal goalkeeper Alex Manninger will be offered a deal with the Reds, after he has been sighted training with the club.

Adam Bogdan has been desperate to leave Liverpool and admitted earlier this month that he did not think it was worthwhile to travel with the squad on the pre-season tour in America.

He told Goal Hungary: "There is not much point going to the USA after my last half-year, plus the new arrival of a goalkeeper shows that they don't count on me.I want to rebuild my good form. I want to play games weekly and get back to the national team.�
