Jasper Cillessen is a rumoured transfer target for Liverpool and Chelsea

Cillessen has been impressive for Barcelona when starting, and is a player that has always been reliable for the Blaugrana in the smaller competitions.

The Dutchman contributed heavily to Barca’s Copa Del Rey win this season, keeping seven clean sheets in nine appearances in the competition to help the club secure their fourth consecutive trophy in the competition.

If Barcelona are to go for either Reina, Rico or Asenjo to replace Cillessen, either of the three will have to pay pretty well to convince the Barca fans that they’ve made the right choice on this occasion.
