Real Madrid have invited Arsenal to bid for Iker Casillas. The Daily Star says Real Madrid need to raise funds to help their Gareth Bale move go through and have offered Casillas to the Gunners.

Arsenal have spent nothing this transfer window but Arsene Wenger could be reluctant to bring in a new stopper.

Polish international Wojciech Szczesny, 23, is the current incumbent between the sticks and Wenger is anxious not to destroy his confidence.

Casillas would be available at a cut-price as he is out of contract next summer.
