Arsenal swooping for Sunderland keeper Mignolet

Arsenal are closing in on Sunderland goalkeeper Simon Mignolet. The Sunday Mirror says Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has moved into pole position to sign the highly-rated Belgium ­international in a £10million-plus deal this summer.

Wenger is prepared to use a significant chunk of his £70m transfer war chest to tempt 25-year-old Mignolet from ­Wearside in a bid to ­finally resolve the long-standing ­goalkeeping issues at the Emirates.

And the fact Arsenal can offer Mignolet Champions League ­football is a huge pull for the keeper, who wants to establish himself as his nation's number one choice before the 2014 World Cup Finals.
