Keepers seem the talk of the day here at the Football Transfer Tavern and Metro are claiming that Iker Casillas is on the radar of Arsenal.
The keeper has been on the fringes of the Real Madrid side this season and was again on the bench for the game against Galatasaray in the Champions League last night. Given his less than perfect relationship with Jose Mourinho, it seems that the Spaniard is set to leave in the summer and given Mourinho is now considering staying at the club, Casillas could well be on his way out.
The keeper may well be protected in the Spanish media but is hurt at the way fans who once hailed him as a saint are now backing Diego Lopez to keep his number one spot in the side. Arsene Wenger is fully aware of this and is considering making a move for the player who has won every trophy going during his time at the Spanish giants and indeed with the La Roja national team.
What would have once seemed an impossible task now seems to be something that could well take place and should Wenger manage to land the keeper that would represent a massive coup for the Frenchman.
Could Casillas really be on his way to the Emirates Satdium this summer? Rate this rumour below.
