Arsenal have reportedly expressed interest to secure the services of Koen Casteels this summer ahead of the World-Cup.

The Belgian goalie has made 34 Bundesliga appearances this season in what has been a difficult campaign for Wolfsburg, who will be playing a relegation playoff.

Arsenal, meanwhile, are thought to be seeking a long-term replacement for Petr Cech who has had clumsy mistakes this term.

As a result, The Sun claims that Wolfsburg keeper will be the subject of a close-season bid by the Gunners, having been scouted by the head of recruitment Sven Mislintat for several occasions.

The 25-year-old Casteels has joined Wolfsburg from Werder Bremen back in 2015 and has been capped by Belgium up to Under-21 level.

Meanwhile, another Bundesliga goalkeeper who has been mentioned with a potential move to Emirates Stadium has been Bayer Leverkusen star, Brand Leno.

Arsene Wenger has left Arsenal after 22 years in charge at the North London club and now it’s up to the Gunners new manager who will be in the goal for the next campaign.
