The Gunners want to add an experienced goal keeper to their squad this summer.
Arsenal look set to bid £1.5 million for QPR’s Brazilian goal keeper Julio Cesar as the Gunners seek an experienced keeper to help them keep more clean sheets, the Daily Telegraph reports.
Cesar was one of the positives that came out of QPR’s season, making a number of excellent saves despite the Hoops leaky defence.
However, despite Cesar’s efforts the club were still relegated from the Premier League and it looks like the Brazilian will be playing elsewhere next season.
Cesar is known to have enjoyed living in London and would like to stay there if possible so a move to Arsenal would certainly interest him.
The Gunners want to sign an experienced goal keeper who can provide competition to current keepers Wojciech Szczesny and Lukasz Fabianski.
With Cesar being 33, Arsenal could probably expect to pay around £1.5 million for the goal keeper, a bargain considering his quality and experience and Cesar would probably start the season as the Gunners number one despite impressive performances from Szczesny towards the end of last season.
Roma are also reportedly interest in Cesar but with the goal keeper settled in London it looks like Arsenal will be front-runners for his signature.
