The Spanish international captain has been frozen out of his club side’s plans this season under Carlo Ancelotti, who has made Diego Lopez his first choice stopper.
Despite being one of the Bernabeu giants’ most influential characters, Casillas’ future at the club is the subject of much doubt, with the player himself worried that a lack of paying time may threaten his career with his national side.
Arsenal have been linked with his signature for some time, and reports suggest that the ‘keeper could be willing to move to London next year.
Casillas is not open to a January switch as he is keen to stay in his homeland ahead of the World Cup and fight for his career in Madrid, but if he is unsuccessful with the latter then a move is a genuine possibility.
Despite the impressive form of Wojciech Szczesny, Arsene Wenger is still thought to be looking to secure a top class glovesman, with the 32-year-old a prime candidate.
Manchester City have also been linked with Casillas, but may instead look to move for Barcelona’s Victor Valdes – who is set to leave the Nou Camp at the end of the season.
