Barcelona appear to be stepping up their interest in Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois after the club's president Sandro Rosell revealed his admiration for the Belgium international.
Courtois, who is currently in his third loan spell at Atletico Madrid, has established himself as one of the best goalkeepers in Europe since moving to the Vicente Calderon in 2011.
And the president of Barcelona, who will need a new goalkeeper next summer following the expected departure of Victor Valdes, has told reporters that he is a big fan of the 21-year-old.
"He is a great goalkeeper, he is very good and I like him a lot," Rosell is quoted as saying.
Chelsea have yet to play Courtois since paying £5m to Genk for the promising young 'keeper in 2011.
And with Petr Cech still a reliable figure in between the sticks at Stamford Bridge, the Blues could be in danger of losing Courtois unless they use him as their first-choice goalkeeper from the start of next season.
