The Gunners want Cardiff stopper Marshall.
Cardiff City goalkeeper David Marshall is a £6m transfer target for Arsenal as the club look to find competition for No.1 Wojciech Szczesny, according to the Irish Mirror.
The Gunners are having to look for recruitment between the sticks due to the imminent departure of Lukasz Fabianski after seven years with the club.
Fabianksi has grown tired of the lack of first team opportunities given to him at the Emirates Stadium since his move from Legia Warszawa in his home nation of Poland.
With loanee stopper Emiliano Viviano also expected to return to Palermo after failing to make a single appearance in 2013/14, Szczesny will be left as the only ‘keeper at the club.
The north Londoners’ manager Arsene Wenger is understood to have been impressed by Marshall, despite the poor showing of the Bluebirds during their time in the English top flight.
The Scot played all but one of Cardiff’s Premier League matches and despite his side’s lack of defensive credibility, was singled out for his standout performances for the Welsh club.
Marshall is 29-years-old and has been at the Cardiff City Stadium for four years since a move from Norwich City.
Whilst Szczesny would still be Wenger’s preferred choice between the posts after his impressive term, the Scotland international would certainly provide stern competition to the Pole.
