Arsenal want to sign Runarsson AND Raya

Arsenal want to sign TWO goalkeepers this summer.

The Telegraph says Arsenal have seen a bid of around £10million rejected for Brentford goalkeeper David Raya.

Mikel Arteta is keen to add to his goalkeeping department following the departure of Emiliano Martinez to Aston Villa. Arsenal are also closing in on the £1.5m signing of Icelandic keeper Runar Alex Runarsson from Ligue 1 club Dijon.

Arsenal want to sign both Raya and Runarsson but says Brentford are only willing to sell Raya if the player returns to the club on loan for this season.

Raya was left out of the Brentford squad for the 1-0 loss to Birmingham City on Saturday on the opening day of the Championship season.

The Spaniard was also not a part of Brentford's 2-0 Carabao Cup win over Southampton on Wednesday.

However, the Bees seem determined to keep hold of the 25-year-old.
