Arsenal spotted Petr Cech successor but face opposition from Real Madrid

Arsenal have identified Athletic Bilbao goalkeeper Kepa as a potential long-term successor to Petr Cech, but will face significant competition from Real Madrid, according to reports in Spain.

Cech remains Arsenal’s undisputed first choice, but he will turn 36 next May and is in the final 18 months of his current contract, while understudies David Ospina and Emiliano Martinez, currently on loan at Getafe, do not retain the full trust of Arsene Wenger.

The Arsenal manager has already begun the search to find a worthy long-term No.1 and will compete with the Champions League holders for 23-year-old Kepa, who has made 22 appearances for the Spain Under-21s and has recently been called up to the senior squad.

Real Madrid have been long-term admirers of Manchester United’s David de Gea but are ready to admit defeat in their pursuit of the former Atletico Madrid star, who last month was reported to be close to signing a contract extension at Old Trafford.
