One of the Football Transfer Tavern’s favourite shot stoppers Tim Krul is the main target for Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger this summer, according to the Daily Star.
The Newcastle United goalkeeper continued to impress last season and Wenger’s clear need for a world class number one means he would be happy to stump up the cash to get the Dutch international.
Queens Park Rangers goalkeeper Julio Cesar looks set to snub a switch to North London in favour of returning to Italy and Serie A with Napoli.
Cesar is just another disappointment of a frustrating summer for the Gunners so far but Wenger still has plenty of cash to spend in order to get Arsenal back in the title race after a number of years battling Tottenham for fourth place.
Krul is valued at £10 million by the Magpies but Arsenal are set to test the water with just £6 million for the 25-year-old who may want to push through a move away from the North East following a disappointing 2012/13 under Alan Pardew.
