Jasper, 28 could be lured to leave Barcelona as he is currently below Marc-André ter Stegen in the pecking order.

Another report revealed that The Gunners are also interested in Stoke City goalkeeper Jack Butland, should they fail to secure the signing of Jasper Cillessen in the summer.

The England International will be excited to join Arsenal citing the prospect of higher wages and European football.
