Arsenal target attracts interest from Schalke

Published Add your comment

Bundesliga side Schalke are keen on signing Arsenal and Manchester City target Iker Casillas, reports talkSPORT.

Real Madrid star Casillas has been linked with a move away from the Santiago Bernabeu, as the veteran shot stopper has lost his starting spot to Diego Lopez.

Former Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho initially signed the former Sevilla goalkeeper to deputise for the then injured Casillas, however the 32-year-old custodian has managed to keep his place as Real Madrid's number one.

Casillas, who starts in the Champions League for Real Madrid, will be desperate to move to a side where he can play regular first-team football - especially as the 2014 World Cup is slowly approaching.

Real Madrid could be tempted into loaning out Casillas in January, before deciding on the Spain international's long-term future in the summer.

Schalke are said to be keen on signing a goalkeeper of Casillas' calibre, as current number one Timo Hildebrand has started the season off in poor form.
