According to TalkSPORT, Arsenal are considering whether to make a move for Orjan Hoskjold Nyland, to replace Lukasz Fabianski, who is set to join Swansea at the end of the month.

Arsene Wenger has previously sent scouts to watch the player and may be set to follow up his interest, now that he is in need of a back-up keeper.

Ochoa on everyones radar

The club were keen to bring in Guillermo Ochoa, who has put in some top quality performances for Mexico during the World Cup group stage, but a number of other high profile clubs are chasing the former AC Ajaccio man, forcing the north London club to explore other options.

Good record

Nyland could prove a good signing for Arsenal – he kept eight clean sheets in 20 games for Molde last season, already has some experience in the Champions League, and is still very young, particularly so for a goalkeeper, at 23 years old.

The talented youngster also has some international experience, having played four games for Norway after receiving his first call-up last year for Norway’s World Cup qualifiers against Cyprus and Switzerland.

Gunners more attractive 

Nyland was previously linked with a move to Cardiff, who are currently managed by former Molde manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, and admitted that it would be hard to turn down a switch to the Premier League. However, Arsenal would be a much more attractive option for the player, although playing time would be less guaranteed.
