Mexico goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa has emerged as a surprise target for Arsenal and Manchester United.

The Premier League rivals are both understood to be in the market for goalkeeping reinforcements and, according to tribalfootball, they are set to slug it out for the £10 million-rated Club America no.1.

Ochoa had initially been linked with Manchester United by The Telegraph, but Arsenal are now thought to have entered the race for the 25-year-old as they step up their pursuit of a new gloveman.

We all know that both United and Arsenal are desperate for a new goalkeeper and that they have scoured the globe in search of the right pair of hands but this one does seems a little far fetched.

Ochoa is on the books of the biggest club in Mexico, Club America, so would be used to the pressure of playing for a large and expectant following espeiclly as their home ground is the gargantuan Azteca Stadium. But he is not even the first choice for his country. If he’s that good then why don’t the Premier League clubs go for Oscar Perez represented Mexico at the World Cup?
