Arsenal are searching for a new goalkeeper as they look to make big changes at Emirates Stadium this summer and Manchester United target Fernando Muslera is on the list.
According to the Daily Mail, Arsene Wenger is ready to use funds from the sale of winger Gervinho to Galatasaray to land a new ‘keeper.
The Turkish side’s number one is on the Gunners’ list of options if they are unable to land their first choice in Liverpool’s Pepe Reina.
However, Arsenal could face competition for the Uruguay international as Manchester United were linked with a possible move for him earlier this year.
Sir Alex Ferguson was reportedly unconvinced by the performances of young number on David de Gea but the Spaniard’s recent form may have eased his fears.
Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers would be loath to let Reina, one of their most senior players, leave Anfield and Gunners boss Wenger may find it difficult to land him.
However, Galatasaray’s reported interest in signing Arsenal flop Gervinho for £12million could open the door to a swap deal for Muslera.
Current Emirates Stadium number one Wojciech Szczesny was recently dropped after a number of poor performances this season and reports emerged claiming Wenger wanted some experienced competition for him.
Lukasz Fabianski came in and looked solid for the impressive, though ultimately fruitless, 2-0 win over Bayern Munich and Premier League victory over Swansea City by the same score.
