Arsene Wenger wants to take advantage of the 32-year-old’s lack of playing time in La Liga…
Arsenal are set to finally go in for Real Madrid goalkeeper Iker Casillas when the transfer window opens in January, reports the Express.
The legendary 32-year-old, who has won everything there is to win for club and country over the past decade and a half, has surprisingly not made a single La Liga appearance this term, and has been restricted to his six Champions League appearances.
With a World Cup in Brazil looming next summer, Casillas is naturally becoming increasingly anxious that his place between the sticks for the current holders of the trophy will be in serious jeopardy.
The Gunners currently have young Polish stopper Wojciech Szczesny in goal at the Emirates, who has been enjoyed a remarkably improved season for Arsene Wenger’s side.
Despite this, the veteran French boss doesn’t want to miss the chance to bring in a world-class international for a bargain price. At just 32, Casillas should essentially be coming into his prime, and would still be bale to play at the highest level for three or four more years.
