Arsenal are in the hunt to purchase another goalkeeper as rumours suggest Brazilian Julio Cesar could arrive at the Emirates Stadium next season. 

Classy stopper Iker Casillas has also been linked with a move to join Arsene Wenger's side, as speculation starts to mount ahead of the summer transfer window.

Wenger could stick with an easier recruitment mission by bringing Julio Cesar across London to strengthen the fight for the gloves, after Casillas played down the chances of a move.

Arsenal will be at Loftus Road tomorrow, and Harry Redknapp will see it as a perfect opportunity to talk business with the Frenchman.

Cesar is thought to be up for a move and his QPR gaffer Harry Redknapp said: "He wants to go to Arsenal? Arsene Wenger will be here tomorrow, if he's interested, I'm sure he'll speak to me."

The goalkeeper situation at Arsenal rumbles on as Iker Casillas has been linked with a move to the red side of North London - something which Wojciech Szczesny, Lukasz Fabianski and Vito Mannone won't be too happy to hear. None of the three have made the position there own however.

Spaniard Casillas has been getting splinters sitting on the bench for Real Madrid, as Jose Mourinho continues to select Diego Lopez between the sticks.

Casillas to his credit is adamant he's still a Real Madrid man however.

"My future lies at Real Madrid because I am under contract. I've been at the club since I was nine years old, this is my boyhood club and it's where I want to be," he said.

The legendary stopper was handed 'The Gold Medal of the City of Madrid' as recognition of 'his personal and professional contribution as one of the foremost ambassadors of the city of Madrid and Sport'.

Casillas may have selected his words cleverly as Jose Mourinho seems destine to link up with Chelsea once again.

Arsene might plunge for Cesar to solve the the on-going salad hand goalie problem at Arsenal, which has been lurking since David Seaman hung up his pony-tail.
