Arsenal check on Vitesse keeper Velthuizen

Vitesse Arnhem goalkeeper Piet Velthuizen is being followed by Arsenal.

Velthuizen is rated as one of the most promising 'keepers in Europe and has established himself as Vitesse's first choice this season.

The 21-year-old committed his future to the club before Christmas when signing a contract extension through to 2011.

He has been linked with Feyenoord, but was watched by an Arsenal scout during Vitesse's 2-2 draw with Ajax on Sunday.

The Gunners could bring in a new 'keeper in the summer, with German veteran Jens Lehmann expected to leave the club.
