Arsenal are reportedly preparing to step up their interest in Australian keeper Mark Schwarzer.
The 37-year-old stopper has been in impressive form at Craven Cottage over the previous two seasons, and Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is ready to make a signing as part of a short-term solution at the Emirates.
With over 78 caps to his name, the veteran is reaching the twilight of his career at both international and club level. That said, the Gunners are looking for a quick fix in the core position of keeper ahead of their next Premier League title challenge, and the Aussie could be their best option.
The Daily Telegraph reports that Wenger is ready to make a second move for the stopper, having previously been knocked back by the west London club under Roy Hodgson.
Since his departure to Liverpool, the Gunners have sensed an opportunity and are poised to make their move for a player who could play a nurturing role for young Wojciech Szczesny. The Pole is seen as the long-term answer to the No.1 question in north London.
