"Arsenal's a good club" - £52.5m target hands huge boost


FC Barcelona's and Netherlands international goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen said he could welcome a move to the Premier League this season, but only if Barcelona told him they do not want his services at Nou Camp any longer.

Cillessen admits he is aware of interest from Premier League teams Liverpool and Arsenal said both believed to be keeping an eye of his situation at the La Liga champions.

Nine of the goalkeeper's 11 appearances with the La Liga champions last season came in the Copa del Rey which Barca won by beating Sevilla 5-0, with a single game in the Champions League and La Liga.

Cillessen said as quoted by Fox Sports:

"I think that I played well in the matches I had in the Copa del Rey,"

"I need to wait patiently. The only thing I know is that Barcelona won’t sell me.

"Arsenal and Liverpool aren’t bad clubs but if Barcelona say, ‘We love you’, then I’ll accept their decision and continue there.

"I’ll wait until we return on the 16th July to see what they’ve decided.

"I don’t know anything. If the club wants to keep me, I’ll accept that. I signed a five-year deal with them."

Cillessen only conceded three goals in the 11 games he played for Barcelona.
