Arsenal line up summer swoop for Brazilian star
Arsenal transfer news: Arsenal have stepped up their interest in QPR 'keeper Julio Cesar, after the Brazilian admitted he wants to stay in the Premier League
Arsenal have lined up Julio Cesar to sort out their goalkeeping difficulties according to the Daily Mirror.
Julio Cesar, 33, has been in tiptop form in a poor season for Queens Park Rangers and has recently admitted that he is happy with life in the capital but would like to remain a Premier League footballer.
The Brazilian only joined QPR last summer but with the west London club all but certain to go down, Cesar will be looking for a move to keep him in the top flight.
QPR currently lie 19th in the Premier League table, 10 points adrift of safety and would need a miracle to escape the jaws of relegation.
It has now been reported that Arsenal have declared their interest in the Brazilian shot-stopper.
Arsene Wenger is supposedly in the market to sign a experienced goalkeeper after unconvincing displays from Wojciech Szczesny. With Lukasz Fabianski out of contract in the summer it looks as though Wenger will make a move for Cesar.
Arsenal have been linked with several goalkeepers over recent weeks with Barcelona's Victor Valdes and Swansea's Michel Vorm being two of the goalkeepers the Gunners have shown interest in.
The list also includes Manchester City's giant Costel Pantilimon, Sunderland star Simon Mignolet and the Gunnners have had a long-term interest in Pepe Reina of Liverpool.
Arsenal were dealt a heavy blow however, in the pursuit of Victor Valdes after the Spanish League leaders told potential suitors that they would like the Spanish international to stay for another season at the Camp Nou.
