Villa, Arsenal go for Bolton keeper Jaaskelainen

Aston Villa boss Martin O'Neill is moving for Bolton Wanderers goalkeeper Jussi Jaaskelainen.

The Daily Star says the 32-year-old Finland international is a free agent in the summer after 11 seasons at the Reebok and O'Neill will lure him with a bumper pay packet.

The Villa boss will waste no time solving his goalkeeping situation after baulking at the £10m price tag Liverpool have put on on-loan Scott Carson.

O'Neill has been satisfied with Carson this season, but his valuation is nowhere near Anfield's and the England keeper seems certain to be sent back to Liverpool.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is also a known admirer of Jaaskelainen and Villa could head an auction for his services given there is no fee.
