'Messi nemesis' emerges on Arsenal radar - reports

Published Add your comment

Sevilla goalkeeper Javi Varas is being linked with a move to Arsenal in the summer.

The 29-year-old has hit the headlines in Spain after saving Lionel Messi's penalty at the weekend, with Los Rojiblancos holding Barca to a 0-0 draw in La Liga, allowing Levante to take a shock lead in the table.

Cadena Ser reports that Arsene Wenger has put the keeper on his Arsenal radar, with the Frenchman eager to strengthen his goalkeeping ranks at the Emirates.


The report goes on to claim Wenger has asked for additional reports on the player as he weighs up his options, whilst a handful of other stoppers are thought to be of interest to Arsenal.

Wojciech Szczesny has made the No.1 jersey his own in north London after a fine start to the campaign, but with Manuel Almunia and Lukasz Fabianski tipped to leave the club next year, experience could be key to providing some competition to the Arsenal first choice.
