Liverpool are battling two European giants for the signing of a €60m Barcelona goalkeeper, according to reports from Spain.

Mundo Deportivo claim that the Anfield club are joined by Napoli and Atletico Madrid in their pursuit of Jasper Cillessen.

The 28-year-old is stuck behind Marc-Andre ter Stegen and has been reduced to mainly cup appearances during his time at the Nou Camp.

As a result, the Dutch international could seek pastures new in the upcoming summer transfer window, with the aforementioned trio in the running to offer him a way out.

While the report states he is not actively looking for a move, Mundo Deportivo also state that the chance to play regular first team football may be too much for him to reject.

The former Ajax star has a release clause of €60m (£51.9m) and has a contract running until 2021.

Liverpool continue to be linked with a move for Roma ‘keeper Alisson Becker, though the Serie A side maintain a firm stance on the Brazilian.
