As per a report from Spanish outlet Onda Cero, all of Arsenal, Liverpool and Napoli have lodged bids to Barcelona for goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen.

No. 2

Cillessen, a 29-year-old Dutch international, has been on the books of Barca since 2016, when he joined the club from Eredivisie giants Ajax.

However, to this point, he has managed just two La Liga starts over the course of his two seasons at the Camp Nou, with German Marc-André ter Stegen having established himself as the Blaugrana’s undisputed first-choice.

As such, Cillessen has been restricted to Copa Del Rey duties for the Catalans, with rumours having long linked the NEC youth product with a departure from the club as a result.

Despite his 2nd-choice status at Barca, Cillessen is nevertheless highly-regarded by most, with the shot-stopper having racked up 40 caps for the Netherlands to this point in his career.
