Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has reportedly ended his hunt for a new goalkeeper to keep faith with Wojciech Szczesny and Lukasz Fabianski, according to the London Evening Standard.

The Gunners have been linked with a number of new goalkeepers for much of the summer, after some high-profile individual errors saw number one Szczesny dropped to the bench towards the end of last season.

However, continued injury problems to backup Fabianski have meant Szczesny has been reinstated as number one, though he was unconvincing yet again at the start of this season in Arsenal’s 3-1 opening day defeat at home to Aston Villa.

Queens Park Rangers shot stopper Julio Cesar has been mentioned as a target for Arsenal, as have Valencia’s Vicente Guaita and, more surprisingly, Real Madrid star Iker Casillas.

But with these clubs setting high valuations for their players, Wenger may feel he is not willing to spend big money on a new ‘keeper just yet, and show more faith in Szczesny as he looks to pursue signings for other areas of his squad.

Arsenal are known to be chasing reinforcements in midfield and upfront, and have been linked with the likes of Yohan Cabaye, Angel Di Maria and Karim Benzema in recent weeks.
