Arsenal could try and sign Tim Krul after a move for Julio Cesar stalled, reports the Metro.

The Gunners were interested in offering Cesar a move back to the Premier League, but have been told by the Brazilian to wait until he returns from holiday.

Arsene Wenger is considering turning his attention to Newcastle shot stopper Tim Krul, as he looks to provide competition for Wojciech Szczesny and Lukasz Fabianski. Wenger has also sold Victor Mannone to Sunderland in order to make room for a new goalkeeper.

The Gunners look set to bid £6million to land the 25-year-old, who could be tempted to leave struggling Newcastle for Champions League football. The Dutch ‘keeper is thought to be admired by Wenger, after Krul established himself as one of the top ‘keepers in the league with the Toon.

But after a difficult season for Newcastle, where they slumped to a 16th place finish, Wenger is hoping he can convince the Dutchman to leave the Magpies, despite being contracted to the side for four more years.

Although Cesar is expected to cost just £1million from QPR, it is believed that Arsenal’s French manager would prefer to sign Krul, despite having to pay much more for the Dutchman.

Should Wenger sign Krul? Or should he take the cheaper option?

    How can you write ‘one of the best keepers in the premier league’ and 6 million in the same paragraph? Krul has 4 years on his contract Newcastle are in a better financial situation than most teams in the prem. They don’t need to sell anyone and Arsenal wouldn’t get him for less than 15 mil, if that. This is a, pathetic, attempt by Wenger to unsettle Krul which is laughable
