The Netherlands international has started just two LaLiga games in two years at the Camp Nou

According to Spanish publication Sport, the Reds are extremely interested in making a deal happen, but will have to pay £25 million.

Jurgen Klopp has become exasperated with his error-strewn first-choice options; Simon Mignolet and Loris Karius.

Despite publicly backing Karius , high-profile errors in pre-season have changed the German’s mind , with Cillessen a serious contender for the No.1 spot at Anfield.


It was also reported that Danny Ward would be given an opportunity to compete for the No.1 spot , having enjoyed a succession of loan spells in the lower leagues.

However, the availability of the Netherlands seems to have changed Klopp’s mind.

The La Liga club have agreed to accept Cillessen’s wishes and they have let him know he can go.
