Jasper Cillessen is a rumoured transfer target for Liverpool and Ancelotti’s Napoli

Despite playing second fiddle to German star Marc-Andre Ter Stegen at the Nou Camp, Cillessen has still managed to make a significant impact for the Spanish giants.

The Dutch international only managed to make a total of 11 appearances for Ernesto Valverde’s side this season, with the majority of these coming in the Copa Del Rey.

Despite only making a handful of appearances for the Blaugrana, Cillessen still played a big part in helping the club secure silverware, as he kept seven clean sheets in nine Copa Del Rey appearances to help the club win their fourth consecutive cup.

If Cillessen goes to either Napoli or Liverpool, one thing’s for certain is either side will certainly have a top quality ‘keeper on their hands.
