Arsenal are preparing to swoop for Middlesbrough goalkeeper Jason Steele, according to The People.

The 20-year-old has been earmarked as a future England no.1 and has been highly impressive between the sticks for Boro since Brad Jones left for Liverpool.

Steele could allegedly be available to Arsenal for around £4 million as Arsene Wenger looks to bolster his goalkeeping ranks at the Emirates Stadium.

The Arsenal boss has been linked with moves for an array of glovemen as he looks to find a more reliable alternative to current Gunners 'keepers Lukasz Fabianski and Manuel Almunia.

Liverpool goalie Pepe Reina and Ajax first-choice Maarten Stekelenburg have both been mentioned regarding moves to Arsenal, with the latter seemingly the most likely to join the Gunners.

"There was interest in him, yes. But there was no official bid as Stekelenburg didn't want to leave," an Ajax insider told talkSPORT.

"What will happen in January? Who knows? You can never tell in football."

Whether Arsenal will step up their pursuit of a new goalkeeper in January remains to be seen, but Wenger is understood to still be monitoring a number of potential targets.
