Arsenal goalkeeper target Anders Lindegaard is set to leave current club Aalesund in January.

The Denmark international has been linked with a host of Premier League clubs after his continued fine form in Tippeligaen, with Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger one of the many admirers.

Manchester United are also thought to be keen on the player, who has previously been dubbed 'the new Schmeichel'.

Speaking to Danish website, Lindegaard revealed: "It's all agreed to leave Aalesund in January. I just hope I will get a call from the Premier League. This is an issue for my agent and he is on track."

The Gunners were heavily linked with a move for the player in the summer, when Wenger was thought to be searching for a new number one keeper at the Emirates.

Despite improved performances from Łukasz Fabiański, who has stepped up following the injury to Manuel Almunia, the Arsenal boss is still thought to be in the market for a goalkeeper.

Arsenal are challenging for trophies on four fronts this season, and strengthening in such a core position is seen as a priority by the hierarchy at the north London club. The Gunners faithful also remain unsure over the current goalkeeping situation.

With interest from old rival Sir Alex Ferguson, the Arsenal manager will be keen to get one over on his old rival and land such a sort after player.
