Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is making QPR goalkeeper Julio Cesar his priority target.The Times says Júlio Cesar has emerged as one of Wenger's key keeper transfer target.

Although Arsenal are monitoring Pepe Reina's situation at Liverpool and have long held an interest in Asmir Begovic, the Stoke City goalkeeper, Wenger is believed to have identified the 33-year-old Brazil No 1 as his preferred replacement for Wojciech Szczesny.

Júlio César, who is expected to start for his country against Spain in the Confederations Cup final in Rio de Janeiro tomorrow, was one of QPR's better performers last season.
