Arsenal are facing the possibility of losing second-choice keeper Emiliano Martinez, who has been targeted by Aston Villa with Tom Heaton set to miss the start of the season.
The Evening Standard have reported that Paris Saint-Germain goalkeeper Alphonse Areola has been offered to the Gunners, as Mikel Arteta mounts a search for a new goalkeeper.
The 2018 World Cup winner is believed to be very interested in joining a Premier League side this summer.
Currently the Gunners have both Bernd Leno and Martinez fighting for the number-one spot.
Martinez has two-years left on his contract at the Emirates, but a move to Aston Villa could guarantee him regular first-team football.
Heaton tore his anterior cruciate ligament on New Years’ Day for Villa, meaning they had to sign former Liverpool keeper Pepe Reina on loan.
The Spaniard had a spell on the bench behind Orjan Nyland half-way through his loan but eventually regained his place and helped keep the West Midlands side up in the Premier League.
With Reina now at Lazio and Heaton still injured, Villa would like a new goalkeeper to come in and start ahead of Nyland.
