Arsenal have joined Liverpool in pursuit for Southampton goalkeeper Alex McCarthy, according to the Metro.
It’s been reported that scouts from both team have watched McCarthy extensively this season as both clubs look to strengthen their goalkeeping options.
Arsenal currently have Petr Cech and David Ospina in the ranks as their senior goalkeepers. However, the 36 year old first choice goal keeper Cech is expected to end his Premier League career soon.
Arsenal aim to bolster their goalkeeping options ahead of next season by signing the 23-year-old goalkeeper who has had an outstanding performance in what has been considered a difficult season for Southampton.
Liverpool’s interest in the Southampton shot stopper was reignited after Roma slapped a whopping price-tag on their initial target Alisson.
The Premier League top sides Liverpool have also declared interest in other goalkeepers like McCarthy and seem confident to sign one.
