Arsenal face competition from Paris Saint-Germain in the race to sign Iker Casillas, according to reports.

The Daily Star claims the Gunners are monitoring the 32-year-old, as Arsene Wenger considers his options between the sticks.

However, the north London outfit aren't the only interested party, with the paper also reporting that Laurent Blanc is eager to bring the legendary stopper to Ligue 1.

Wojciech Szczesny is currently the number one at the Emirates Stadium, but remains in the spotlight after an inconsistent campaign last season.

Brazilian international Julio Cesar was touted as a possible replacement for the Pole, but the QPR stopper is closing on a move to Benfica in the closing stages of the transfer window.

Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti has opted to stick with Diego Lopez ahead of Casillas for the start of the La Liga season, and it's alerted clubs across Europe.

Marca claims Arsenal have already made contact with people close to the keeper, and now have seven days to secure a move in the final stages of the window.

Casillas will want first team football with a World Cup less than a year away, and the Gunners could offer the 149-cap international that chance.
