Bookmakers very rarely get it wrong, annoyingly, so news that Sky Bet have suspended betting on Arsenal’s move to sign QPR keeper Julio Cesar would appear mean a deal is certain to go ahead, at least that’s what our friends at the Metro claim.

The 33 year old former Inter Milan custodian had a decent season with QPR last term, despite their relegation to the Championship, and looks likely to leave Loftus Road this summer.

TuttoMercato have previously claimed that Arsenal have offered Cesar a two year contract worth £3.4m a year and it does seem likely that Arsene Wenger would look to bring in an experienced keeper after an alarming drop in form from young Pole Wojciech Szcz?sny.

Prior to his move to QPR last August Cesar had spent seven seasons with Inter Milan, helping the San Siro side to five Serie A titles and a Champions League triumph.

QPR are bound to offload a number of their highest earners as owner Tony Fernandes seeks to cut costs following the West London side’s relegation to the Championship.
