Liverpool and Chelsea have both begun to show interest in Barcelona goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen.
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.
Dutchman Cillessen has a contract with Barca which is set to run until 2021 but will assess his future after interest from rivals Liverpool and Chelsea emerged, as report Mundo Deportivo.

Both clubs are in the market for a goalkeeper, with Liverpool struggling to find a permanent candidate for the position and Chelsea set to part ways with Thibaut Courtois who still has not signed a new deal at Stamford Bridge.
Liverpool’s plight was heightened following Loris Karius’ horror show in the Champions League final against Real Madrid.
Two howlers from the young German saw Madrid lift the trophy for the third time in as many seasons.
The Spanish media suggest Barca do not want their Dutch No 2 to leave, though will consider offers should they be both mutually beneficial to both the player and the club.

Liverpool are in the market for a new stopper following Loris Karius’ unconvincing displays
Barca ‘know that it is difficult to say no to a player who can improve economically and professionally because he would go from substitute to starter,’ state Mundo Deportivo.
Liverpool and Barca are no strangers when it comes to doing business, following the high-profile transfer of Philippe Coutinho in the January window.
The Reds had publicly condemned the approach of Barca, who aggressively pursued the playmaker last summer in hope of having him in club colours in time for the 2017/18 campaign.
Liverpool eventually relented mid-season, as Coutinho made the switch in a deal which is set to rise to £145million.
