Liverpool and Chelsea show interest in Barcelona goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen

La Blaugrana goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen reportedly wants a move away from the Camp Nou in the summer transfer window.

The 29-year-old is considering his future in Catalonia after seeing his game time limited with the Spanish giants, whose first choice between the sticks is Marc-Andre ter Stegen.

The Barcelona man moved to Spain from Ajax in 2016 but has made just 21 appearances for his new club, nearly all of those in the Copa Del Rey.

The Dutch worldwide has played second fiddle to Marc-Andre ter Stegen for the last two years, and wants to reestablish himself as a number one.

Cillessen joined Barcelona for a fee of €16 million in 2016 but has also admitted that he will not push for a move if the club chooses not to sell him in the summer.

However, TeamTalk are carrying a reporting from Don Balon that claims the La Liga giants have now chose to cash-in and informed the likes of Liverpool and Chelsea they can sign Cillessen if they put £44m on the table - which is a reduction on his £52m release clause.

It's reported by the Spanish publication that Barca want to use the money raised from Cillessen's sale to strengthen other areas of the squad and will sign a cheaper back-up for ter Stegen.

This will come as good news to both Liverpool and Arsenal, who have been linked with Cillessen this summer in their respective hunts for a new keeper. Simon Mignolet has proven his unreliability over the years, while Loris Karius, who was thought to be the solution to their woes, cost them the Champions League final with two catastrophic errors.
