According to reports in Germany, Arsenal have been looking at Stuttgart keeper, Sven Ulreich, as they consider options ahead of a likely summer purchase in that area.
Bild says that the Gunners sent scouts to watch the 24 year old German during the 2-1 German cup semi-final win over Freiburg, and last weekend Ulreich saved a penalty in the 2-0 defeat by Greuther Furth.
Ulreich, who has made 42 appearances for Stuttgart this season and is well established as their number 1, wasn’t drawn on any rumours, however, saying, “I do not concern myself with such things. We have plenty of other problems in Stuttgart right now that I’m focused on.”
With Lukasz Fabianski out of contract at the end of the season, and Vito Mannone not sufficient cover/competition for Wojciech Szczesny, it does seem likely that Arsenal will buy a keeper this summer.
Rumoured targets have included Simone Mignolet, Asmir Begovic from Stoke City, Iker Casillas (!) and Joe Corrigan.
