AC Milan have emerged as the frontrunners to sign Queens Park Rangers goalkeeper Julio Cesar in the summer transfer window, with the Brazilian shot-stopper also linked with a move to either Arsenal or Manchester United.

Cesar has been one of the few QPR players to impress this season as the west London club fight desperately to preserve their Premier League status, but Harry Redknapp's side remain seven points from safety with only seven games to play.

According to, the 33-year-old is now closing in on a transfer to Milan just a year after leaving Inter for QPR, with the Rossoneri close to agreeing a two-year deal with the player worth £3.6 million.

Along with AC Milan, Cesar has also reportedly been tracked by Arsenal and Manchester United, with both Arsene Wenger and Sir Alex Ferguson claimed to be monitoring the 'keeper from the January transfer window onwards.

Arsenal are reported to be on the lookout for a new first-choice gloveman having lost faith in Wojciech Szczesny, who has recently lost his place as the club's No.1 to fit again compatriot Lukasz Fabianski.

Manchester United, meanwhile, have frequently been linked with a move for a new goalkeeper when the transfer period re-opens in July and, along with Cesar, Ferguson is reported to have been tracking Asmir Begovic of Stoke City.

David de Gea has, however, proved himself more consistent in recent months, although Manchester Untied could still look to recruit goalie with greater experience to join their Old Trafford ranks.
