Arsenal and Liverpool are interested in off contract Barcelona goalkeeper Victor Valdes.

Valdes is recovering from knee surgery and AS Monaco have pulled out of a pre-contract agreement with the Spaniard.

The Daily Express says Valdes is on the radar of Gunners boss Arsene Wenger as he seeks experienced competition for Wojciech Szczesny.

Liverpool are also keeping tabs on the Spaniard, with questions marks remaining over Pepe Reina's Anfield future after he returned from a loan spell with Napoli.
