Gunners lead chase for Darlow
A number of Premier League clubs are tracking Nottingham Forest goalkeeper Karl Darlow, according to Sky Sports, with Arsenal amongst the interested parties.
Arsene Wenger is on the lookout for another keeper following Lukasz Fabianski’s departure on a free transfer to Swansea, and Sky Sports understands that Darlow features highly on his wish list.
The 23-year-old English man has enjoyed a super two seasons since becoming Forest’s number one keeper in January last year, and is now widely regarded by many as one of the most impressive young goalkeepers outside of the Premier League.
He made 45 appearances last term and in total has appeared 67 times on the Forest goal.
Scouts have been seen regularly at the City Ground in recent months with Liverpool and Tottenham also credited with an interest in the stopper.
However it is Arsenal that are thought to have stepped up interest as they search to provide cover and competition to current number one Wojciech Szczeny.
Forest understandably will be reluctant to see the player leave as they look to maintain a promotion push next season and return to the top flight for the first time in 15 years.
