Premier League giants Arsenal are reportedly eyeing the long-term replacement for ageing Gunners goalkeeper Petr Cech.

Retired Czech Republic international Cech is in the twilight of his career at the age of 37 and the North Londoners are already planning to sign a replacement.

Arsenal want to sign a goalkeeper that will challenge Bernd Leno for the no. 1 spot in the Gunners’ goalkeeping department for many years to come.

German international Leno is the undisputed first-choice shot-stopper at Arsenal this season following his £22.5m transfer from Bundesliga side Bayer Leverkusen during this summer’s transfer window.

Bernd Leno started the first six Premier League games on the Arsenal bench before he came on as a first-half substitute for the injured Cech in the seventh league outing against London rivals Watford.

According to Spanish media outlet Fichajes via the Daily Express, Real Madrid goalkeeper Keylor Navas is unsettled at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu and he could be an option for the Gunners.

The Costa Rican international shot-stopper was a key member of the Real Madrid team that won three successive Champions League titles between 2016 and 2018.

He lost his place in the Real Madrid starting XI this season following the summer arrival of Thibaut Courtois from Chelsea.
