Levante goalkeeper Keylor Navas welcomes reported interest from Barcelona.

Levante goalkeeper Keylor Navas has revealed that reported interest from Barcelona 'motivates' him to continue improving.

The 27-year-old is widely regarded as one of the best stoppers in La Liga, with his performances this season drawing a host of interest from across Europe.

However, the Costa Rican has insisted that his feet are still firmly on the ground.

"I've had a difficult journey and coming from a small country I always knew I would have to fight to make it. Sometimes I wondered if it would all be worth it. It was my family who gave me strength," he told Marca.

"Barcelona? That's in God's hands. I live in the present. I don't think about the long term. It motivates me, but I take it in my stride. It means I'm doing my job well and I intend on continuing that way."

Navas joined Levante from Albacete in 2012.
