Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is in desperate search of a new goalkeeper in the summer after seeing how poor his first choice goalkeeper has performed throughout this campaign.

The Gunners first choice netminder Petr Cech has endured a season to forget due to his costly errors for the larger part of the season and Wenger is hoping to find a good replacement for the 36-year-old who could be allowed to leave the Emirates Stadium this summer.

Despite having David Ospina who has been impressive for the Gunners in his little appearances this season, the French gaffer believes he still needs to bring in a keeper who is believed to be a world-class shot-stopper.

In his bid to find a lasting solution to the club’s goalkeeping crisis, Wenger has been linked with a summer move for RB Leipzig’s goalkeeper Peter Gulacsi according to The Sun Newspaper.

Though the goalie has a relatively unknown profile in world football, his quality is never in doubt as he helped the Bundesliga club end last season in the second position on the German League standings, 10 points behind Borussia Dortmund who were the title winner.

Gulacsi was a former Liverpool player who failed to have any meaningful impact in the team as he rarely featured for the Merseyside club during Rafa Benitez reign at Anfield stadium before leaving the club in 2013.

The player has seen his value risen up since his switch to RB Leipzig due to his heroic displays, he is valued at £24m by transfermarkt.

He is also being monitored by Everton and Chelsea according to reports.
