Keylor Navas is now on Arsenal radar for potential January move .
The 32-year-old has dropped from the pecking order at Real Madrid – The north London club at looking to make a £12.6million bid for the Costa Rican Premier League giants Arsenal are looking to plot a £12.6million move for Real Madrid shot-stopper Keylor Navas. The Costa Rican international has been dropped to No. 2 at the Bernabeu since the arrival of Thibaut Courtois in the summer. And according to Spanish news media outlet El Confidencial, Unai Emery wants to provide competition in his goalkeeping department.
Petr Cech is going off colour as he is set to turn 37 while German international Bernd Leno is yet to convince the Gunners boss he is a formidable replacement. Navas will make no hesitation in jumping at the offer in playing in the Premier League as he is likely to become Cech’s replacement. Emery also sees Navas as a winner having lifted the Champions League for the past three consecutive seasons with Los Blancos..
One supporter on social media wrote: “Great goalkeeper but his age puts me off, also is a goalkeeper the answer to our problems?” Another wrote: “Not sure we need to spend money on a GK when we have other priorities.” A fan added: “Leno is better on the feet, the better shot stopper and is younger. Keylor is just as prone to mistakes as Leno is.” One Reddit user said: “Doesn’t make any sense, we clearly need another CB for squad depth.
