Gunners now considering a move for Fiorentina goalkeeper Neto.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is considering a move for a new first choice goalkeeper after the recent axing of Wojciech Szczesny from the Emirates Stadium first team, report the Mirror, with apparent Liverpool target Neto the player who is now being linked with a move to the North London club.
The Brazilian goalkeeper is out of contract with the Florentine club at the end of the season and has so far shown little indication of wanting to extend his deal with the club, leading to significant interest in luring him away from La Viola.
The 25-year-old has already been linked with a move to either Juventus or Liverpool, but with Arsenal set to wade into the chase for Neto, this particular transfer saga shows little signs of being resolved in the near future.
Wenger’s desire to bring in another goalkeeper seems to have arisen from recent issues with Szczesny, who was dropped from the first team after he was caught smoking in the showers following defeat at Southampton last month, with Colombian international David Ospina now preferred in the first team.
