According to reports in London, Iceland international goalkeeper Runar Alex Runarsson is set to have a medical with the Gunners.
The Gunners are looking for a replacement for Aston Villa bound Emiliano Martinez, with the Argentine goalkeeper moving to villa park in a £20million move.
Brentford keeper David Raya has been targeted by Arsenal but Brentford won’t let him go easily and would command a fee of over £10m. Which Arsenal seems reluctant to pay for the goalkeeper.
Now Arsenal are said to be looking at Runarsson, who plays for Dijon in France. And he seems like a perfect backup for first choice goalkeeper Leno.
The 25-year-old was an unused substitute in England’s 1-0 win over Iceland in the UEFA Nations League earlier this month.
