Unai Emery has played down suggestions that Arsenal could be lining up a transfer move to sign Real Madrid goalkeeper Keylor Navas.
The rumour may have come as something of a surprise to Gunners fans given that Arsenal brought in a new goalkeeper in the form of Bernd Leno in the summer transfer window.
Now, Emery has moved to pour cold water on suggestions that the Gunners could be set to make a move to bring the 32-year-old from Real Madrid to The Emirates.
Asked directly about the reports linking Arsenal with a move for Navas, Emery told a news conference on Friday: “Not true.
“We never speak about one goalkeeper because I think – and it's true – we are very happy with the three goalkeepers we have now. We've never spoken about Keylor Navas.”
Navas has only made two appearances in La Liga for Real Madrid so far this season.
The north London side are likely to be linked with a number of players this month as the mid-season transfer window gives Emery the chance to strengthen his squad.
Arsenal currently find themselves in fifth place in the Premier League table as they look to try and break back into the Champions League qualification spots before the season is out.
