According to Spanish media outlet Don Balon, Barcelona goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen will be allowed to leave the Camp Nou this summer if he release clause of €60 million (£52.7 million) is met, and Liverpool are prepared to match that asking price.
Jürgen Klopp has already spent big at Anfield this summer, bringing in the likes of Fabinho and Naby Keita, but many believe that they still need to add a world class goalkeeper to their ranks, if they are to mount a sustained challenge for the Premier League title.
Don Balon claims that Cillessen is attracting attention from Liverpool, and that the Merseyside club are prepared to meet his £52.7 million release clause in order to bring him to Anfield this summer.
Good signing for Liverpool?
Cillessen is a solid goalkeeper, but £52.7 million is a lot of money to pay for someone who has played just two league games since moving to Barca in the summer of 2016.
The Dutchman is extremely agile, but standing at just 6ft 1in tall, he is far from the physically imposing character that Liverpool need between the sticks.
The Reds are also reportedly tracking Atletico Madrid's Jan Oblak and Roma's Alisson, and they might just be better served in spending more money on one of those two mentioned names, considering that they are both younger than Cillessen, as well as being on a different level to the Netherlands international.
