Newcastle United are eyeing Barcelona keeper Jasper Cillessen as Rafa Benitez is keen to have a new member in his squad in January.
United also have Rob Elliott as their experienced shot-stopper as they have already let go of Tim Krul to Brighton during the summer. Cillessen could be a good match for the club as he only made 1 start for his new club in La Liga from Ajax, playing the second choice to first-choice keeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen.
Reports are surfacing that Cillessen is also keen on the move as he wants more regular first-team football as he is also frustrated with his year in Spain.
Most of Newcastle fans, however, think that while they may need the services of Cillessen, their first priority should be finding a striker and not a keeper.
Rafa Benitez is looking to add a new keeper to his side and the Spaniard has identified Barcelona’s Jasper Cillessen as an ideal target. The Dutchman is keen on leaving the club in order to play regularly and Newcastle would be a perfect choice for him. [Sportslens] #NUFC pic.twitter.com/jgP8OGM8DU

All these people saying we need a striker, we’ll yeah, but do you just turn down a decent player if they become available? Of course not
