Arsenal continue to be linked with a move for German keeper Rene Adler.

The Bayer Leverkusen stopper was a reported target at the Emirates as long ago as April, with Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger thought to be monitoring the keeper at the end of last season with a view to a summer deal.

25-year-old Adler is regarded as one of the finest goalkeepers in Europe, building on his reputation with consistently high level performances in the Bundesliga after making his debut back in 2007.

With well over 100 appearances in both league and cup, as well as European football, the Bayer star is more than equipped for the Premier League should the Gunners make a move.

At international level, Adler made his debut for Germany in late 2008 and was tipped to be the No.1 for the World Cup. However, an injury ruled him of that place in South Africa and Manuel Neuer took the coveted position during the tournament.

The Metro also link Stuttgart defender Serdar Tasci with a move to the Emirates, claiming the north London club need £20 million to secure the double signing.

A goalkeeper is believed to be the main priority for the club though, with Wenger yet to decide on his No.1 at the Emirates following good performances by Manuel Almunia and Lukasz Fabianski.

With Mark Schwarzer just one of a string of keepers linked with a move to the club, Frenchman Wenger is thought to be looking at several options as the start of the season moves ever closer.
