Arsenal are keeping tabs on Keylor Navas’ situation at Real Madrid, according to reports emerging in Spain.
The 32-year-old goalkeeper helped the Los Blancos to a three consecutive Champions League titles but has fallen out-of-favour this season at Santiago Bernabeu following the arrival of former Chelsea goalkeeper over the summer.
Despite helping Real to three UCL titles, the Costa Rica goalie has registered just seven appearances between the sticks for the La Liga club and is now said to be eyeing a move away from Madrid ahead of next month’s transfer window.
Spanish news outlet Fichajes, via TribalFootball says Arsenal are strongly interested in the goalkeeper and a deal could be struck in January.
With Petr Cech nearing the end of his professional football career, the signing of Navas could be as a direct replacement to the Chelsea legend whilst also serving as a competitor for Bernd Leno.
However, it remains to be seen until January (if possible) or until next summer whether the Gunners will make a bid for the goalkeeper as they have other important areas of the squad that need addressing.
