The Dutch stopper swapped Ajax for Barcelona in the summer of 2016 but has so far had to play second fiddle to Marc-André ter Stegen. He has only made 10 appearances for the Spanish giants so far.

According to Don Balon, the 28-year-old could leave the Nou Camp this January with Benfica looking to take Cillessen on loan for the remainder of the campaign. The Portuguese champions could then look to make the deal permanent for €15 million.

Benfica have been looking for a new goalkeeper since selling Ederson to Manchester City in the summer for €40 million.
