Arsenal have told Wojciech Szczesny and Lukas Fabianski that no goalkeeper will be signed during this transfer window, reports the Evening Standard.
Arsene Wenger was reported to be keen on signing a 'keeper this summer with Julio Cesar, Vincent Guaita and Iker Casillas have all been linked with moves to the Emirates.
However, the Evening Standard is reporting that Arsenal's Polish pair have been reassured that they will be the only ones fighting for the No.1 spot in the red half of north London.
The Arsenal manager is yet to dip in to his transfer budget but has prioritised other areas to strengthen before the window closes on Monday night.
Wenger is also keen to see Szczesny continue his development at the club, believing the 23-year-old has the potential to be one of Europe's top 'keepers.
Concerns over his inconsistency remain but Wenger is reluctant to halt his progress, unless a top class 'keeper like Casillas becomes available.
Although Casillas has been displaced by Diego Lopez in the Real Madrid team, the Spaniard is still unlikely to leave the club he has been with since the start of his career.
After failing in a bid for Guaita and baulking at Cesar's excessive wage demands, Wenger is happy to stick with what he has.
The failure to sign a new 'keeper will see the highly rated Damian Martinez promoted to the senior squad as third choice after selling Vito Mannone to Sunderland.
However, Martinez is yet to feature in the Premier League for Arsenal and is not considered ready for a prolonged spell in the team. As a result, he will not challenge Fabianski or Szczesny for a starting spot.
