Krul, 25, has been hailed as one of the most consistent goalkeepers in Europe by fellow Dutchman and former Manchester United stalwart Edwin Van Der Sar, and he is also wanted by Bundesliga side Borussia Monchengladbach as a potential replacement for Marc-Andre Ter Stegen, who is believed to be joining Barcelona in the summer.
