Premier League giants Liverpool are reportedly in the desperate move to capture Dutchman Jasper Cillessen, who is Barcelona’s second-choice goaltender.
The Reds are hoping to have a stronger goalkeeping department than what they had during last season and they are making moves to ensure that achieve their goals for the upcoming season.
Cillessen, 29, experienced lack of game-time with the Catalans during the previous season as he was made to watch all League matches from the substitute bench.
According to Spanish media outlet Mundo Deportivo, the Dutchman is willing to move out of Camp Nou this summer as he seeks a regular first-team action in the upcoming season.
The reports also suggest that the Anfield stadium might be his next destination as Jurgen Klopp is ready and willing to offer huge money for the goalie before the end of the current transfer market.
Meanwhile, Klopp still remains coy to signing either Alisson Becker of Roma or Jan Oblak of Atletico Madrid. Both players were initially linked with the Merseyside club during the winter transfer period but it appears to be a mere rumor as their were no further report about their potential move to the Reds.
As for Cillessen, moving to the Anfield stadium will provide him with the chance to rejuvenate his career. He would hope to make Klopp’s starting lineup in the upcoming season, which is very much likely to happen considering Karius Loris’ inexperience and also the fact that Simon Mignolet is on his way out of the club.
The 40-capped Barcelona goalkeeper could cost the Reds a whopping sum of £60m, according to the same source.
