Arsenal are being linked with a summer swoop for German goalkeeper Rene Adler.

The Sunday People claims Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has set his sights on the 28-year-old stopper as his search for a new number one continues.

Lukasz Fabianski is currently first choice between the sticks, taking the place of Wojciech Szczesny after a number of inconsistent performances from the Pole at the Emirates Stadium.

But, with neither able to make the position their own, speculation now suggests that Wenger will delve into the transfer market to strengthen in the position at the end of the season.

Adler only joined current club Hamburg last summer, switching from Bundesliga rivals Bayer Leverkusen. And, the paper claims he’d be available to Arsenal for a cut-price £5million.

That’s cheaper than Stoke stopper Asmir Begovic, whose valuation is now reported to be in the region of £15million.

Adler would bring both a commanding presence and top-level experience to the Gunners if he made the move to north London, but Wenger's side must first concern themselves with securing a top four finish in the Premier League.
