Liverpool FC are considering a deal to sign goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen from FC Barcelona this summer, according to reports in Spain.

Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo, as quoted by Metro, is reporting that the Reds are targeting the Dutch goalkeeper this summer as Jurgen Klopp looks to strengthen his options between the posts.

Loris Karius’ future at Anfield has been cast into doubt after his nightmare performance in the Champions League final.

The 29-year-old Cillessen has been an understudy to Marc-Andre Ter Stegen at FC Barcelona and it is thought that he is now keen to seal a move to get some regular playing time.

The same story says that Liverpool FC have turned to the FC Barcelona man after suffering setbacks in their reported pursuits of top targets Jan Oblak and Alisson.

Liverpool FC are likely to be on the lookout for a number of signings this summer as Klopp looks to build a squad capable of winning the title next season.

The Reds confirmed their first arrival of the summer on Monday when they tied up a deal to bring Fabinho to Anfield from Monaco.

Liverpool FC finished in fourth place in the Premier League table last term.
