After a stunning week 1 defeat, the Gunners are already looking to hedge their bets on Petr Cech with another veteran.
Arsenal are looking to strengthen the goalkeeper position that was exposed in Week 1 by adding Olympiakos stopper Roberto Jimenez.
According to the Metro, the Gunners have “tabled a bid” for the 29-year-old Olympiakos goalkeeper in the wake of their decision to loan out Wojciech Szczesny to Roma last month and the future of backup David Ospina in doubt.
With a £4.3 million release clause in his contract, Arsene Wenger is reportedly a little hesitant to pull the trigger on a transfer for the former Spanish national team stopper.
Roberto Jimenez made 29 starts for Olympiakos in the Superleague Greece last year, and has been the starting stopper for the club for two straight years, winning two league titles and last year’s Greek Football Cup.
Arsenal starting goalkeeper Petr Cech was embarrassed in his debut, giving up two goals in the first sixty minutes of a shutout loss to West Ham United.
