Arsenal join race to sign Liverpool goalkeeping target

Arsenal have joined the race to sign Liverpool target Norberto Neto after the future of current goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny is still in doubt, Daily Mail reports.

The Premier League pair have been in search of a new number one after both keepers were criticized for their performances in recent months.

Neto, who currently plays for Serie A side Fiorentina, has also attracted interest from league rivals Juventus and is tipped for a club exit in the summer.

Szczesny was making a number of mistakes and also recently fined for smoking after the defeat to Southampton, prompting Arsene Wenger to drop him for new signing David Ospina.

Due to this, the Polish international may be forced to leave the Emirates as the Gunners are already preparing to find another man to stand between the sticks.

Wenger might need to tie down a deal soon because he still faces competition from Brendan Rodgers, who is also keen on reinforcing the role.
