Cardiff City have rejected a £6 million offer from Arsenal for goalkeeper David Marshall, according to The Express. 

The report has, however, suggested that the Gunners can have the Scottish shot-stopper for £15m. The goalkeeper had a fine season for the Bluebirds in the last campaign, despite the club's relegation down to the Championship. 

However, he could now make a move back to England's elite division if the Gunners more than double their initial offer. 

Arsenal could yet face competition from their north London rivals Tottenham for the 29-year-old, with the White Hart Lane outfit also reportedly interested in the player's services. 

It remains to be seen as to whether Spurs - who have just appointed Mauricio Pochettino as their new boss - make a move for the 'keeper in the near future. 

The Gunners, though, will be hoping Marshall arrives at the Emirates this summer and acts as competition to Wojciech Szczesny between the sticks. 

After Lukasz Fabianski departed the club for Swansea City last week, it appears that Wenger has identified Marshall as the man to replace him.
