Arsenal are reportedly set to rival Chelsea in a transfer battle for Barcelona keeper Jasper Cillessen.

The Netherlands international arrived at the Nou Camp two years ago but has featured just twice in La Liga, with Marc-Andre ter Stegen the established first choice.

Cillessen could seek a move this summer for regular first-team football and according to Sport, Arsenal and Chelsea are the frontrunners for his signature.

Sport claim that the 29-year-old has a release clause of €60m (£52m) but Barca may be willing to accept a much lower bid if the player wants to go.
