Arsenal are ready to make a bid for Newcastle United goalkeeper Tim Krul.

The Daily Star says according to reports in Holland, the Gunners will look at testing Newcastle's resolve by offering £6m for the 25-year-old.

Krul will provide massive competition with Polish duo Wojciech Szczesny and Lukasz Fabianski for the no.1 shirt.

Arsenal recently parted company with Italian shot stopper Vito Mannone, who joined Sunderland to help make room for a fresh set of safe hands.
