Arsenal fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern are heading over to the bar to see the article from Metro that the landlord is showing everyone – which claims that Arsenal are looking to complete a deal for Real Madrid stalwart Iker Casillas.
The 33-year-old goalkeeper has been at the La Liga giants his whole career and finally looks like he could leave the club this summer.
As our landlord in the Tavern quips, both Wojciech Szczesny and David Ospina have not looked completely reliable this season, and it seems that Arsene Wenger has realised that and is keen to obtain a world-class goalkeeper in the summer.
The publication claims that talks were held between Madrid and Arsenal in the January transfer window, with a deal failing to materialise from the negotiations.
Arsenal fans here inside the Transfer Tavern over by the dartboard are deliberating the deal, with virtually every Gunners fan feeling that Casillas could offer the side one good season that could potentially aid a Premier League title push.
