Liverpool are preparing a deal for Swansea stopper Michel Vorm in the summer as back-up for Simon Mignolet, according to the Mirror.

The Dutch international has been in brilliant form over the past couple of seasons and may look to make a move out of Wales in search of Champions League football.

Brendan Rodgers is a keen admirer of the player, having managed him during his time with the Welsh club before moving to Liverpool.

The northern Irishman is looking to add more competition in that position as the Reds look for their sixth European title after being on a hiatus for five years.

Vorm is reportedly willing to fight for a place in the Liverpool squad and will jump at the opportunity to compete in Europe. The Reds currently have Brad Jones as cover, who was part of the starting line-up in their 2-1 loss to Arsenal in the fifth round of the FA Cup.

Rodgers is looking for more experience for that number two spot and is willing to meet his valuation of £7m to strengthen their title chances for next season.

Meanwhile, the Liverpool manager is hoping that Manchester City fail to hold their nerves and give them a life-line with the final day of the season on the horizon. A point for Pellegrini's side will seal the title for the Citizens, while a loss will allow Liverpool to make up for lost ground.

"It will be interesting if we make one of our quick starts and get up in the game. Then there'll be a point when we're up and City are drawing. It's not nice when you know there's another team playing that can win. When you know you have to not lose, it's uncomfortable," Rodgers said.

"It's not over by any stretch of the imagination and West Ham are a really good defensive unit. Andy Carroll can score goals, they've got other players who can score goals and there will be a nervousness there," he added.
