The Real Madrid goalkeeper could be heading to Arsenal in the summer, according to reports, according to reports.
According to Spanish media outlet Don Balon, Real Madrid stopper Keylor Navas has told his teammate Marco Asensio that he could join Arsenal in the summer.
The Gunners are thought to be on the look-out for a top-class goalkeeper at the end of this season, with Petr Cech showing glimpses of a decline this term, and the 31-year-old Costa Rican could be just the man for the job.
Don Balon claim that Navas has told Marco Asensio that he could be heading to north London this summer, as Real Madrid chiefs continue their pursuit of Manchester United’s David De Gea and Chelsea’s Thibaut Courtois.
Would the Madrid stopper be a good signing for Arsenal?
Whilst the 31-year-old is an able performer, there would be serious questions asked of the Gunners’ transfer policy, if they brought him to the Emirates this summer.
Navas is a decent shot-stopper, but he lacks that certain level of authority that Arsenal currently desperately lack
The Costa Rica international doesn’t possess the presence to command his penalty area, and that should be enough for the north Londoners to avoid a move for him this summer.
He is valued at £16.2 million, according to Transfer Markt, but the Gunners would be better off spending big on someone like Jan Oblak, if they truly want to make a sustained challenge for the Premier League title next season
