Liverpool prepared to meet Jasper Cillessen's £52.7m release clause

Barcelona goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen would like to leave the club this summer, as long as the club receive a satisfactory offer for his services.

Ever since Marc Andre Ter Stegen joined Barcelona back in 2014, the German has been superb for the Spanish champions cementing his place as the number one goalkeeper.

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.

According to news outlet RAC1, the Dutch shot-stopper wants to play more frequently and is willing to leave the Catalonian club in order for a starting role.

Cillessen has been heavily linked with a move to the Premier League this summer, with suggestions Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea are keeping tabs on his situation at the Nou Camp.

However, TeamTalk are carrying a reporting from Don Balon that claims the La Liga giants have now made a decision to cash-in and informed the likes of Liverpool and Chelsea they can sign Cillessen if they put £44m on the table - which is a reduction on his £52m release clause. And he is now exhausted of being the back up to Ter Stegen informing the closest of his friends that he wants out of the Camp Nou.

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.

Loris Karius suffered a nightmare in the Champions League final as Liverpool went down 3-1 to Real Madrid.
