Arsenal are the latest Premier League team to take an interest in Danish keeper Anders Lindegaard.
The 26-year-old stopper finally earned international recognition with a clean sheet debut against Iceland on Tuesday, and Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has taken an interest in the player as a potential long-term No.1 at the Emirates.
Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is also thought to be keen on the player, with the Old Trafford club looking to find a replacement for veteran Edwin van der Sar, who turns 40 in October.
Frenchman Wenger failed in his efforts to sign a keeper during the transfer window, with Mark Schwazer, Maarten Stekelenburg and Federico Marchetti all linked with moves to north London in July and August.
The Arsenal boss is keen to bring in competition between the sticks, with Manuel Almunia and Lukasz Fabianski both coming in for criticism at the end of last season and throughout the summer.
TalkSPORT understands that the Gunners have declared an interest in Lindegaard, with the club 'keeping an eye' on the player with a view to a potential January move.
Dubbed the new Peter Schmeichel, Lindegaard currently plies his trade in Norway for Aalesunds FK. The goalkeeper could become embroiled in a transfer battle between the two Premier League giants as both Ferguson and Wenger search for their new number one.
