Jasper Cillessen open to Arsenal or Liverpool move if Barcelona force exit

Jasper Cillessen open to Arsenal or Liverpool move if Barcelona force exit

Barcelona goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen says he is happy to stay on if he is wanted at the Camp Nou, but suggested he could otherwise be open to a move to Arsenal or Liverpool.

Cillessen has a release clause of £52million and has admitted Barcelona will not sell him for anything less, despite having been back-up to Marc-Andre ter Stegen last season.

After Loris Karius' very bad performance against Real Madrid in the Champions League final, The Reds are looking for a new goalkeeper.

Cillessen has recently been linked with a move away from Barcelona, with the Dutchman keen to return to playing football every weekend.




And hence, Arsenal are expected to fight Liverpool for Cillessen's signature, instead of Chelsea. One potential replacement is Barcelona keeper Jasper Cillessen. Barcelona have told all clubs that he is not for sale, and any club wishing to sign him would have to activate his €60 million release clause. But, Chelsea and Arsenal seems to have entered the chase to further complicate the matters.

Arsenal on the other hand, have an ageing first-choice keeper in Petr Cech, who has become prone to blunders of late.

Spanish newspaper Sport, as quoted by Metro, is reporting that both of the London clubs have approached the Spanish giants to enquire about the availability of the goalkeeper in the summer transfer window.

The Gunners manager, Unai Emery has asked the club's board to sign a new goalkeeper this summer.
