Arsenal are being linked with a summer move for Udinese keeper Samir Handanovic.
The Slovenian stopper impressed during his nation's World Cup campaign, and Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is thought to be interested in a potential move for the 25-year-old.
Handanovic made his senior debut for homeland club Domžale in 2003, before being signed by Serie 'A' Udinese the following season.
Loan spells at Treviso, Lazio and Rimini suggested a career at the Stadio Friuli might not be fruitful, but Handanovic has gone on to make over 100 appearances for the Zebrette and is now the No.1 at the club.
International recognition came as early as 2004, with Handanovic making his debut as a teenager against Slovakia. The nation's top stopper, he proved himself in South Africa with performances that have led to interest from a string of clubs.
One of those is thought to be the Gunners, with Wenger keen to strengthen in the core position of goalkeeper ahead of the new Premier League season.
The Metro reports that the north London club see Handanovic as one of the most under-rated keepers in Europe, and could capitalise with an early move for one of the best kept secrets in Serie 'A'.
Alternatively, the north London club are thought to have been offered Portuguese international Eduardo as their search intensifies heading towards the opening league fixture against Liverpool.
