Arsenal look set to miss out on one of their top transfer targets this summer.

It would come as no surprise to Arsenal fans that the Gunners are in the market for a new goalkeeper.

Petr Cech will be 36 year’s old this summer and the veteran ‘keeper has hardly been consistent throughout the season. Meanwhile, David Ospina does not appear to be the answer.

However, according to the Mirror, the Gunners won’t be signing┬áToulouse shot-stopper Alban Lafont this summer.

The 19 year-old has attracted attention from Serie A side Napoli, who are now the favourites for his signature.

Lafont has established himself at the French side despite his tender years and has attracted attention from several other top European sides.

Arsenal could turn to Stoke’s Jack Butland instead. Arsene Wenger’s side have been linked with the England international and could snap him up on the cheap should Stoke get relegated.
