Cillessen is currently second-choice to German keeper Marc Andre ter Stegen at FC Barcelona.
The rumours surrounding Jasper Cillessen’s future at Barcelona have gathered pace, with many linking him with a move out of the club. Sport earlier reported that Premier League clubs like Arsenal and Chelsea are chasing the Dutch goalkeeper.
Spanish publication Mundo Deportivo now reports that Barcelona have come to terms of Cillessen leaving the club, and have reportedly made a shortlist to replace the goalkeeper.
However, Mundo Deportivo also reports that Barca doesn’t wish to sell Cillessen, but will consider the bid if it comes with a lucrative offer. As of now, Arsenal and Chelsea are leading the race for his signature.
The Spanish publication reports that Wolfsburg’s Koen Casteels, Cologne’s Timo Horn and Werder Bremen’s Jiri Pavlenka are the three goalkeepers the Catalan giants have shortlisted to replace Cillessen.
It is also claimed that Barcelona’s priority, should Cillessen leaves, will be Koen Casteels.
Jasper Cillessen is currently the second-choice goalkeeper at the Catalan club, behind German keeper Marc Andre ter-Stegen. Cillessen has appeared for Barcelona in 21 games since joining the club in 2016.
Cillessen is a first-team regular for Netherlands. The 29-year old goalkeeper has made 39 appearances for the Dutch side since making his debut in 2013. He was the first-choice goalkeeper for the team during the FIFA World Cup in 2014, when Netherlands finished as third, as they beat Brazil in the third-place match.
However, Netherlands failed to qualify for this year’s world cup in Russia.
Cillessen joined Barcelona from Ajax in 2016, for a fee worth €13m.
