The Belgian has been allowed to leave Liverpool this summer after being refused a loan to Napoli last season following Loris Karius' departure to Besiktas.
Sky Sports News understands Mignolet, who had also been a target for Benfica, wanted to be closer to his family back in Belgium.
The 31-year-old signed a five-year deal with Liverpool in 2016 and is understood to have left Anfield on very good terms, with Liverpool satisfied with the fee and happy to fulfil the player's wish to leave.
Mignolet, capped 21 times by Belgium, joined Liverpool from Sunderland six years ago and made 204 appearances for the club, winning the Champions League in 2019.
