Arsenal will battle with Tottenham and Manchester City for Watford goalkeeper Scott Loach in January, according to the Daily Mail.
The 22-year-old has found himself in the last two England squads but has admitted that he will need to move to a higher club if he is to have any chance at winning his first cap.
Spurs tried to sign the youngster last January but he was not keen on becoming second choice to Brazilian Heurelho Gomes.
And a move to Manchester City would see him behind both Joe Hart – the current England No.1 – and Shay Given.
Arsenal are currently looking for a new stopper to replace Manuel Almunia, but the Spaniard now has the chance to change Arsene Wenger’s mind during the first half of this season.
Other teams supposedly interested are Fulham and Everton, the latter whom have Tim Howard as their established keeper.
Fulham might be a better option, especially if the Gunners re-ignite their interest in Mark Schwarzer – but David Stockdale has been keeping net so far this term.
Loach told the Evening Standard: “I'd definitely have a better chance of getting in the England team if I was playing week in, week out in the Premier League.
'That's where you've got to look, though there's not really an opening anywhere at the moment where I would walk into a team.
'I don't find the idea of stepping up daunting, it's exciting. I believe that if I was to get an opportunity to play at a higher level that I'd be able to step in and do a job as I am confident in my own ability.”
