Arsenal turn to Man City keeper Bravo

Manchester City goalkeeper Claudio Bravo is a short-term target for Arsenal.

The Sun says Bravo is a reported target for Arsenal with Mikel Arteta's side fearful that Bernd Leno could face up to 12 months on the sidelines.

The German goalkeeper suffered a horrific knee injury against Brighton on Saturday as he left the pitch on a stretcher after landing awkwardly following an aerial challenge from Neal Maupay.

Arsenal are waiting to see if he has suffered cruciate knee ligament damage, which would see him out of action for a year.

The North London giants have Emiliano Martinez to rely on at the moment, with the Argentinian ace enjoying his best season in terms of appearances made at the club.

But Arteta could look to add experience, with Bravo - who he worked with at the Etihad - claimed to be a possible target, as well as Burnley's Joe Hart.
