Arsenal keen on signing three-time UCL winner as replacement for departing star

Unai Emery appears to be keen on bringing in another shot-stopper to fill the gap which will be left by departing goalkeeper Petr Cech this summer.

The Gunners boss had his work cut out for him when he arrived at the club last year with the team possessing one of the worst defensive records out of all of the top six sides in the Premier League.

Even though Bernd Leno has taken over as the number one goalkeeper, Emery is likely to feel that a reliable back-up for the German will be needed for his side to compete with rival clubs again in the league.

Thus, according to Plaza Deportiva, Arsenal are keen on a move to sign Real Madrid goalkeeper Keylor Navas as they seek a replacement for the departing Petr Cech.

Navas featured in his last game for Madrid last month in their 2-0 loss to Real Betis, with manager Zinedine Zidane keeping the likes of Thibaut Courtois and Luca Zidane ahead of him in the pecking order all season.

OPINION:

When Arsenal signed Petr Cech in 2015, he was around the same age as Navas is at the moment and unless the 32-year-old is willing to accept a role as back-up to Leno, then it is not worth going for a goalkeeper who has had a year of little to no action.
