Barcelona see Wolfsburg keeper Casteels as Cillessen replacement

Barcelona are preparing for the sale of goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen.

A move to England has been mooted for the Holland international, who is a target for Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea.

Barca are willing to do business and are already identifying potential replacements.

High on the agenda is VfL Wolfsburg's Belgian keeper Koen Casteels. The 25 year-old is yet to be capped, but has established himself as Wolves' outright No1. Casteels' ground game is particularly attractive to Barca's football staff.

Tim Horn (FC Köln), Tim Krul (Brighton & Hove Albion), Rui Patricio (Sporting Portugal) and Jiri Pavlenka (Werder Bremen) are also being considered. However, it's understood Casteels is the priority for now.
