Several reports in the British press claimed Arsenal were interested in signing Keylor Navas from Real Madrid as a possible replacement for aging Petr Cech who is set to leave in summer.
Unai Emery has dismissed speculation that Arsenal could be looking at signing Keylor Navas from Real Madrid.
Spanish newspaper Sport had claimed that the Gunners could offer Navas an escape route from Madrid, with the 32-year-old having been demoted to a back-up role behind summer signing from Chelsea Thibaut Courtois.
The report went as far as suggesting that Emery’s side had lodged a €16 million (£14m/$18m) bid and that the player had already said his goodbyes to his Madrid team-mates.
But boss Unai Emery played down the reports, saying: “We never speak about one goalkeeper because I think – and it’s true – we are very happy with the three goalkeepers we have now. We’ve never spoken about Keylor Navas.”
The Costa Rican No.1 has fallen behind Thibaut Courtois in the pecking order at the Bernabeu and had been expected to leave.
But he has instead extended his contract until 2021.
