Mundo Deportivo have a story of interest to Liverpool in their Monday edition.
As the summer transfer window approaches there’s an increasing amount of claims around the European media and with Liverpool being so much in the consciousness, thanks to their march to the Champions league semi-final, there’s an increasing amount of rumours relating to the Anfield club.
Mundo Deportivo claim there’s three clubs seriously interested in signing Jasper Cillessen from Barcelona this summer, and the Catalan newspaper names those clubs as Liverpool, Napoli and Atletico Madrid.
Atletico would be interested in case someone takes Jan Oblak away, and Napoli need to replace Pepe Reina. As for Liverpool, it’s still considered by many that they need a better senior goalkeeper, despite Loris Karius improving recently.
All three clubs have made contact and ‘asked’ for the goalkeeper, but there’s no explanation of exactly what that involves. Liverpool are said to have proposed a ‘project’ to Cillessen and also guaranteed him the starting spot.
Given Jurgen Klopp’s faith in Karius, misplaced or not, it may be hard to believe he feels 29 year old Cillessen is so much better that the Dutchman would be guaranteed to start.
Firmly second choice at Barcelona behind Marc-Andre ter Stegen, Cillessen is hardly going to leave to sit on another club’s bench.
