Liverpool target Barcelona goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen

There has been numerous goalkeepers linked with Liverpool in past few weeks.

According to the football transfer rumours in British media, Liverpool are targeting Barcelona goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen.

The Netherlands international was signed by Barcelona in August 2016 from Ajax for a fee of 13 million euros. The 29-year-old has a contract until 2021 with the club.

Since his arrival from Ajax, Cillessen has conceded 12 goals and provided 11 clean sheets in 21 game.

The 29-year-old is considered to be one of the best goalkeepers in Netherlands.

As a member of Netherlands national football team, Cillessen won 39 caps.

His performances have seen him become the target of many European clubs including Liverpool.

Jürgen Klopp wants to sign a new goalkeeper and Jasper Cillessen is one of the names at the top of his wishlist.

The Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp wants to continue to strengthening his squad so they’re able to compete both domestically and in the Champions League next season.

According to The Sun (via Mundo Deportivo), “Jasper Cillessen has reportedly emerged as a Liverpool target. The beaten Champions League finalists are in the market for a new keeper after Loris Karius’ pair of howlers cost them a 3-1 defeat to Real Madrid on Saturday. Mundo Deportivo claim that Liverpool have now identified Barcelona’s second-choice stopper Cillessen as a player that could become their No1. The Reds seemed to have settled on Roma’s Alisson and Atletico Madrid’s Jan Oblak as their two main goalkeeping targets. But Oblak’s release clause stands at £87million, with Atletico unlikely to part with the Slovenian for anything less.”

Barcelona are not in a position where they need to sell and would like to keep hold of the goalkeeper, but right offer may force the club to consider a deal.

A move to Liverpool is exactly what Jasper Cillessen needs to reignite his career, and we hope he is able to do just that.
