Arsenal are on the verge of losing another goalkeeper as highly-rated youngster Deyan Iliev edges towards a permanent switch to Belgian Pro League side KV Mechelen.

The Daily Mail reports how the 19-year-old stopper is approaching the end of his contract in north London, and with no new offer on the table is ready to quit the club in search of regular first-team football.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has already lost the services of number two Lukasz Fabianski, who penned a four-year contract with Premier League rivals Swansea City after failing to agree a new deal at the Emirates Stadium.

And, with on-loan custodian Emiliano Viviano also set to return to Italy with Palermo, Arsenal suddenly appear very short on goalkeeping options ahead if the 2014/15 campaign.

Wojciech Szczesny has successfully established himself as Wenger's first-choice keeper, but the Frenchman will need to enter the transfer market for cover for the Pole during the summer.

Iliev first joined Arsenal from FK Belasica in 2012, but despite making waves at youth international level the Macedonian failed to get anywhere near the Gunners' first-team.
