Premier League rivals, Arsenal and Liverpool are reported to have joined in on the race to secure the signature of Barcelona second choice goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen.

The North Londoners have been heavyily linked with a new ‘keeper in recent times, with Petr Cech not being at the top of his form for the club.

Daily Mirror is currently reporting, Bayer Leverkusen shot-stopper Bernd Leno is among the players in Arsenal’s sights, but Cillessen could be a decent option as well.

Spaniish outlet, Mundo Deportivo have recently linked the Dutchman with Liverpool, and reported that he has a release clause of just £52million.

With Don Balon now claiming Arsenal could be in for him as well, with the former Ajax man perfectly fitting the bill for their needs at the moment.

Despite being a backup at Barca, Cillessen would likely be a major upgrade on Cech and David Ospina as an option in goal for Arsenal.

And at £52m, he’s reasonably affordable, even if the north London giants don’t quite have the spending power of some of their rivals.
