Arsenal eye Sporting Goalkeeper

Rui Patricio

Arsenal are set to make a £13m bid for Portugal national team’s No. 1 shot-stopper Rui Patricio.

Reports claim that Arsene Wenger wants to make his goalkeeper place competitive with current goalkeeper Petr Cech underperforming this season. The new target has been Sporting Lisbon goalkeeper Rui Patricio.

Patricio played 31 times for the Portuguese club so far this season, keeping 12 clean sheets in all competitions.

The Gunners are willing to spend up to  £13million for Patricio.

However, other options are also under consideration. One of them is Leicester City goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel. The current Premier League champions are struggling in the league and their key players have been linked with a move away from the club.
