Júlio César closes in on move to Arsenal

Brazil goalkeeper Júlio César is edging closer to joining Arsenal, according to reports.

The QPR shot stopper has held talks with several Premier League clubs after being told he can leave Loftus Road following the Hoops’ relegation.

César, 33, has confirmed that he would prefer to stay in London and Arsenal are considered frontrunners for the Brazilian’s signature.

Various bookmakers, including Bwin.com, have suspended bets on César moving across West London to North, although he isn’t expected to complete his move until he returns from Confederations Cup duty with Brazil at the end of the month.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is determined to sign an experienced ‘keeper this summer as competition for the inconsistent Wojciech Szczesny.

Lukasz Fabianski and Vito Mannone’s likely departures from Emirates Stadium have forced Wenger to prioritise signing a goalkeeper. Other targets include Gonzalo Higuain and Marouane Fellaini.
