Arsenal target in talks with Premier League clubs

Queens Park Rangers goalkeeper Julio Cesar has confirmed he is in talks to remain in England and join another Premier League club.

Despite cementing his place as number one ahead of Robert Green and a string of fine performances, Cesar was unable to prevent QPR's relegation to the Championship.

With a squad full of high earners, Harry Redknapp is understood to be keen to let the Brazilian leave on the cheap in order to get his hefty £70,000 a week contract off of the wage bill.

With over 200 appearances for Inter Milan and 67 caps for Brazil, Cesar comes with a wealth of experience and is still widely regarded as one of the world's top goalkeepers. 

There have been a number of clubs eager to secure his signature and Cesar has confirmed he is likely to be on the move with another spell in England likely.

"I am in negotiations with other clubs in England and from other countries, but there's still not been anything definitive," Cesar told the Mirror. "I am concentrating on Brazil, I still have a deal with QPR, but I also know I have to prove that I should be in the squad for the World Cup in 2014."

The Brazilian's words will put Arsenal on high alert as Arsene Wenger is reportedly on the look out for a new number one. Neither Wojciech Szczesny or Lukasz Fabianski have covered themselves in glory this season, and with extensive Champions League experience Cesar fits the bill as the Gunners look to bolster their back line.

Cesar, who is due to face England in Rio de Janeiro on Sunday, clearly has ambitions to be included in his home World Cup next year - and a return to the top level with one of Europe's leading teams would impress coach Luiz Felipe Scolari.
