Premier League side Arsenal are pondering over a move for Dutch international goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg according to footballdirectnews.com.
The Fulham goalkeeper has fallen out of favour with the club and after being replaced by David Stockdale, the Holland international could be on his way out of Craven Cottage.
He joined Fulham from Italian giants AS Roma for an undisclosed fee on a four-year contract. However, just a year into it he wants to leave following his snub in the World Cup squad.
With current second choice goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianksi leaving the club, it seems that manager Arsene Wenger has added Stekelenburg to his shortlist of goalkeepers which already features Alex McCarthy of Reading and Kasper Schmeichel of Leicester City.
It is thought that a deal to bring Stekelenburg to the Emirates would be a cheap one following Fulham’s relegation to the Championship as their wage bill will need to be slashed to ensure the club’s financial safety.
