Arsenal are ready to make a bid for Stoke City goalkeeper Asmir Begovic.

The Mirror says they are now desperate to sign a goalkeeper, with Stoke's Begovic back on the agenda.

Arsenal are holding talks with Valencia's Vicente Guaita, they have also got Espanyol's Kiko Casilla on their radar, but there is a determination to make one last push for Begovic. If they cannot persuade Stoke to sell the 26-year-old, they will most likely go for Guaita, also 26.
