Arsenal approach Lille for Landreau talks

Lille goalkeeper Mickael Landreau is a target for Arsenal.

The Daily Mail says Arsenal have made an inquiry for Lille goalkeeper Landreau - but have not given up totally on signing Fulham's Mark Schwarzer.

Manager Arsene Wenger confirmed yesterday that he was still working on strengthening his goalkeeping position and the experienced Landreau is the latest in his sights.

Landreau, 31, had an impressive season last year and is available for around £6.5million.

Wenger was linked with Landreau last summer also and has monitored his form.

Although he didn't make France's squad for the World Cup that was seen as a surprise omission after one of his best seasons.

Wenger wants experience and could switch back to Schwarzer, 37, if Fulham find a replacement in time but is growing impatient.
