Arsenal are weighing up a January move for promising young Legia Warsaw goalkeeper Radoslaw Majecki.

The Gunners have been tracking the highly-rated 19-year-old for months and are thought to have sent more than one of the club’s backroom staff to watch Majecki since he broke into the Legia first team this year.

It is believed one of Arsenal’s goalkeeping coaches attended a recent Poland Under-20 match to assess Majecki’s suitability for the Premier League.

Standard Sport understands he is considered unsuitable as yet for the first team and any deal next month would in all probability see him loaned back to Legia immediately until the summer.

There is the possibility of a significant reshuffle in the goalkeeping department at the end of the season as it remains unclear whether Petr Cech will be offered an extension to his current contract which expires in May.

Bernd Leno has gradually claimed the number one spot following his £19.2million summer move from Bayer Leverkusen.

Cech started Wednesday’s 2-0 Carabao Cup quarter-final defeat to Tottenham but that was his first outing since November 29 and the 36-year-old could be open to a move elsewhere if his playing time continues to be restricted.
