BARCELONA are planning to test Liverpool’s resolve over Mohamed Salah by offering them a solution to their goalkeeping crisis.
Jurgen Klopp wants to bring in a top quality shot-stopper at Anfield this summer.
So far, the German’s hunt for a new keeper has come up short.
And top target Alisson is seemingly out of reach as Roma are demanding £70m for Brazil’s No.1.
Loris Karius’ costly errors in the Champions League final against Real Madrid showed Liverpool have to act.
And one target to have been linked is Barcelona back-up Jasper Cillessen.
The Netherlands international, 29, has had to play second fiddle to Marc Andre ter Stegen at the Nou Camp.
Reports have suggested he wants to quit the club before the start of next season.
And Liverpool lead Chelsea with the bookies in the race to sign him.
Barcelona could take advantage of the situation as according to Spanish outlet Don Balon, who are renowned for their outlandish transfer claims, the Catalan giants are readying a proposal to Liverpool.
A move for Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann appears to be off, meaning Barcelona are having to rethink their summer goals.
Rivals Real have been repeatedly linked with a pursuit of Salah, but Barcelona consider him their Plan B option to Griezmann.
The 2018 PFA Player of the Year is admired at the Nou Camp, although the La Liga winners know Salah will prove costly.
As a result, Don Balon add an offer of £88m plus keeper Cillessen is being planned.
Barcelona know Klopp wants the keeper and Cillessen would jump at the chance to join Liverpool.
Whether the Reds would be willing to part with Salah, especially having lost Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona in January for £142m, remains to be seen.
