Arsenal target set for departure

QPR Goalkeeper Julio Cesar

Arsenal target Julio Cesar is close to leaving QPR, according to talkSPORT.

The Brazilian goalkeeper is set to leave the London club after they were relegated from the Premier League last season.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has been heavily linked with a move for Cesar, as he looks to sign an experienced goalkeeper to replace Wojciech Szczesny at the Emirates. The polish ‘keeper only played 25 league games last season, after being rotating with Lukasz Fabiasnki.

QPR manager Harry Redknapp has confirmed that Cesar will be leaving Loftus Road this summer:

“Julio Cesar will move on. He won’t want to play in the Championship, he’s a goalkeeper for a big club.” said Redknapp.

“He’s a top class goalkeeper, Brazil’s No.1. He’s been in great for Brazil and I presume there’s a big club out there for him.”

Cesar is set to return from the Confederations Cup after helping Brazil win the tournament, lifting the trophy in style with a 3-0 victory over World and European champions Spain.

The 33-year-old, who was the UEFA Goalkeeper of the Year 3 seasons ago, looks set to be on the receiving end of a bid from Arsenal. Wenger has been given £70million to spend this summer, and Cesar could be one of many top names to move to the Emirates this summer.

Will Cesar join Arsenal? Will it be a good move for the Gunners?
