Arsenal are reportedly on the verge of signing Australian keeper Mark Schwarzer.
Schwarzer has plyed his trade in England for over a decade, joining Bradford City for a season in 1996 before moving to Middlesbrough the following season.
After over a decade at the Riverside, Schwarzer moved to London on free transfer, with Roy Hodgson snapping up the highly rated keeper.
A solid couple of season, which included helping the Cottagers reach the Europa League final, have enhanced Schwarzer's reputation further.
The Gunners are desperate to add a new keeper to their ranks after a disappointing season, with the No.1 position highlighted as a problem area for the north London side.
Despite his advancing years, the Aussie appears to be one of the top targets at the Emirates.
Wenger is known to gamble, with the signing of Sol Campbell last season proof that age isn't always an obstacle.
37-year-old Schwarzer could be seen as a risk by some, but the Mirror reports that Wenger sees the stopper as a veteran who can also help develop the young keeper talent coming through the ranks in north London.
