Arsenal have offered a deal to out-of-contract Leicester City goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel, according to Danish newspaper BT.
The Denmark international has just three months remaining on his deal at the King Power Stadium and is free to negotiate a pre-contract with clubs.
Despite the fact that the Foxes have won promotion to the Premier League, it is looking increasingly likely that Schmeichel will leave at the end of the season and now Arsenal have offered him a tempting deal.
The Gunners are on the lookout for a new backup goalkeeper as, like Schmeichel, Lukasz Fabianski is set to leave the Emirates when his contract expires.
Wojciech Szczesny has been the firm first choice for Wenger for the last two seasons, but without Fabianski, and with Emiliano Viviano set to return to Italy, Arsenal will be left with just one recognised goalkeeper in their ranks.
Wenger has moved quickly to tempt Schmeichel to the Emirates, who has also attracted interest from Premier League rivals Manchester United.
Schmeichel would be naturally drawn to Old Trafford where his father, Peter, enjoyed so much success in the 1990's.
However, like Arsenal, Schmeichel would go to Manchester United as a reserve goalkeeper to David de Gea. The Spanish goalkeeper initially struggled after signing from Atletico Madrid but has since established himself as one of the best goalkeepers in the league.
Amongst Manchester United and Arsenal, AC Milan, Olympiakos and Southampton are all weighing up a move for the 27-year-old.
