Why Arsenal would be interested in signing a new goalkeeper remains a mystery, since Bernd Leno has done a good job since taking over from Petr Čech, but they are in talks with one.

According to Paris Fans, the London club are discussing the possibility of signing Alphone Aréola with his agent, Mino Raiola, as the Frenchman will return to Paris Saint-Germain following a loan spell at Real Madrid.

He never managed to supplant Thibaut Courtois there, and with no spot for him in France’s capital either, an exit this summer is highly likely.

The French website explain Raiola is ‘looking for a spot in the Premier League’ since Paris Saint-Germain are no longer counting on him.

To find a ‘good sequel’, the agent has turned his attention to Arsenal, and while we aren’t talking about a ‘close transfer’ just yet, Paris Fans state ‘there’s a good hope to see this exit door materialise for Aréola’.

All we need to do now is ‘wait for talks to advance and become more concrete’.

That sounds promising, but until we see a bit more on this, we won’t be holding our breath about it just yet.
