Palace want Cillessen

Barcelona goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen is the subject of interest from Premier League side Crystal Palace, say reports in Spain.

According to Diario AS, new Palace boss Frank De Boer wants to bring the 28-year-old, whom he previously coached at Ajax, to Selhurst Park.

De Boer signed the current Dutch international from NEC in 2011 and the goalkeeper went on to make over 100 Eredivisie appearances for the Amsterdam club, winning three league titles.

Cillessen moved to Barca last summer in a €17 deal but failed to dislodge first choice goalkeeper Marc-Andre Ter Stegen – making only one La Liga appearance.

The Netherlands goalkeeper would likely be first choice at the London club and could replace the outgoing Steve Mandanda, who is reportedly the subject of interest from Marseille.
