Chelsea and Liverpool to battle to sign Barcelona goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen
Premier League rivals, Chelsea and Liverpool, are keen to sign the 29-year-old Dutchman, who is said to be displeased at not being given enough opportunities.Unhappy at playing second fiddle to German goalkeeper Marc-André ter Stegen at Barcelona, Jasper Cillessen has demanded a move away from the Nou Camp, according to Mundo Deportivo.
With Thibaut Courtois contract set to expire next summer, Chelsea will have to sell the big Belgian if he doesn't agree to a new contract or lose him on a free next season. PSG and Atletico Madrid, his former club, are interested in signing him, and Chelsea will have to replace him with able hands, hence the speculation surrounding a move for Jasper Cillessen.
Meanwhile, it seems like Jurgen Klopp is determined to replace Loris Karius as Liverpool's No. 1 as Liverpool have been linked with several goalkeepers recently, including Roma's Alisson. Cillessen will fit perfectly in Liverpool's style of play of building from defence.
But the two English clubs aren't the only ones interested in signing the Barca No. 2. Italian club Napoli are also in the race to sign the Dutchman to replace former Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina, who has moved on free transfer to AC Milan.
