Arsenal are ready to bid for Bolton Wanderers goalkeeper Jussi Jaaskelainen in January.

The Finn has so far baulked at signing a new contract offer that was tabled earlier this summer and Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is ready to pounce, says the People.

With Jens Lehmann on the outer, Wenger is eyeing Jaaskelainen as a potential new No1 at Emirates stadium.
