Arsenal are looking to have a stronger squad next season that can enable them to compete for titles in the country and also better their chances of finishing in the top four. Some experienced players have been linked with the club and it is a matter of time for the Gunners to make an official transfer move.
According to Mundo Deportivo and cited by Sport Witness, Barcelona goalkeeper Neto is set to leave Barcelona after playing his last match against Blaugrana.
It further reports that the Brazilian has his eyes set to join Arsenal as the initial attempt was thwarted in January by current manager Ronald Koeman who wanted to ensure the current season was well covered.
The 31-year-old has a contract lasting till June 2023 and Barcelona may require a small fee for his suitors with Arsenal set to solve the latest goalkeeping crisis at the club.
Neto has been on the bench as Marc-Andre ter Stergen is the preferred choice for Koeman. This has left Neto to feature just 9 times for the club both in La Liga and UEFA Champions League.
