Arsenal and Liverpool are both reportedly interested in signing Feyenoord goalkeeper Justin Bijlow.

Bijlow helped Feyenoord to a second place finish in the Eredivisie last season, conceding 14 goals and keeping six clean sheets in 17 games.

It seems that he has played his last game for the club, however, as he is being heavily linked with a move elsewhere.

Who is Justin Bijlow? The Feyenoord goalkeeper wanted by Arsenal & Liverpool

Arsenal are open to selling backup goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale this summer, meaning they will need to bring in a replacement.

Ramsdale, who was dropped in favour of David Raya, is said to be on Newcastle's radar.

Meanwhile, Liverpool are in a similar situation, as Caoimhin Kelleher's time at Anfield could be up.

The Irishman has performed well in Alisson's absence but, at 25 years of age, he will surely be looking for a starting spot somewhere else.

The Reds should have an advantage in the race for Bijlow as their new manager, Arne Slot, worked with him at Feyenoord.

"Those are two very nice clubs," Bijlow told Dutch outlet Voetbalzone when asked about the transfer rumours.

"Of course it is always nice to be mentioned at big clubs. What I’m just saying: I’m ambitious.

"As long as I play for Feyenoord I will give everything for that and first I just want to focus on the Dutch team."

Bijlow will be representing Holland at this summer's European Championship in Germany.

"Would I stay at Feyenoord? You never know, do you? That’s football," he added.

"I’m ambitious, I’ve always said that. If the opportunity presents itself and a good club comes from abroad, I am open to it. I’ve always said that."
