Liverpool are currently favourites in signing Barcelona goal-stopper Jasper Cillessen ahead of Chelsea who have shown interest in signing him, according to the bookies.

The Blues are believed to be in the market for a replacement for Thibaut Courtois as his future remains uncertain with reports linking him with a move to Real Madrid this summer.

The Reds are understood to be looking out for a new ‘keeper after Loris Karius’ errors in the Champions League final defeat to Real Madrid.

Cillessen, is considering his future at Camp Nou due to a lack of playing time; the 29-year-old made just 11 appearances last season and is reported to be in search of regular play time.

A BetStars spokesperson: “With Thibaut Courtois entering the final year of his contract and Loris Karius’ dire display in the Champions League Final, Chelsea and Liverpool could both be targeting a new goalkeeper this summer, and it appears that man could be Barcelona’s Jasper Cillessen.

“We have Liverpool as the marginal favourites in the race to sign Cillessen at 3/1, with the Blues just behind at 4/1.”
