Gunners chase another keeper after late 'enquiry'

Arsenal have reportedly made a late enquiry over keeper Mickael Landreau as the transfer window begins to draw to a close.

The French international stopper impressed for Lille in Ligue 1 last season, and Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger could still look to pursue a £6.5 million move for the player.

Wenger has reportedly been monitoring the player for some time, and is keen on adding an experienced goalkeeper to his side after failing in the chase for 37-year-old Mark Schwarzer.

The north London club were thought to have original made enquiries about the player at the end of last weekend, with the Daily Mail reporting that the Gunners were ready to bid for the player.

After their quests to sign Schwarzer and Hugo Lloris, Landreau has again emerged as the possible new No.1 at the Emirates as the Gunners look to pot together a strong title challenge this season.

The stopper spent a decade with Nantes after making his debut in 1996, signing for PSG on a free transfer in 2006. Three years later, Landreau moved to Lille and has been the number one at the temporary Stadium Lille-Metropole ever since.

With time quickly running out on the Gunners as they look for a keeper addition, negotiations would need to be well under-way already if the north London club are to capture the player before 6pm.
