Chelsea resigned to losing World Cup star, already set to make £52million offer to replace him with Barcelona man


Arsenal and Chelsea are going head-to-head for Barcelona goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen this summer, according to Express Sport.

The Blues are almost certain to lose regular goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois who will leave the club in the summer.

Arsenal are also searching for a new goalkeeper after Petr Cech's disappointing campaign at the Emirates this season.

Cillessen is second choice goalkeeper at Barcelona and has a £52million release clause in his contract.

The Dutchman has never managed to beat the competition of Marc-Andre ter Stegen at the club and could demand a transfer this summer.

He played once in La Liga, once in the Champions League and seven times in the Copa del Rey this season.

Stoke City's Jack Butland is also on Chelsea's radar according to reports in England.
