Queens Park Rangers will allow Julio Cesar to leave the club for free during the January transfer window, with the availability of the Brazilian reportedly set to place Arsenal on alert.
Cesar has not made an appearance for QPR since their relegation from the Premier League, and the 34-year-old will surely be desperate to force a move in order to maintain his position as Brazil's No.1 goalkeeper as the World Cup approaches.
Hoops manager Harry Redknapp realises Cesar needs to leave west London in order to fulfil his ambitions, and is not prepared to stand in the way of the former Inter Milan gloveman.
"He needs to play and I feel he’s a player who could play for any team in the world," Redknapp told reporters.
"We won’t stand in his way. We’ll let him go for free."
According to Metro, this revelation from Redknapp will be of interest to Arsenal, who had attempted to clinch the signature of Cesar during the summer transfer window, only to be priced out of a move.
Cesar, however, may not consider a switch to Arsenal if he arrives as back-up for Wojciech Szczesny - something that would appear likely given the lucrative contract awarded to the Pole at the weekend.
