Arsenal are said to have sent scouts to see 22-year-old Belgian keeper Guillaume Hubert in action.
The Gunners have been safe as houses between the sticks since they finally solved their goalkeeping problems with the signing of Petr Cech in 2015.
But the 6ft 5in 34-year-old can’t go on forever and Arsenal will be posed with the same problems in a couple of years if they don’t try to assimilate someone now.
And that’s where Hubert could come in.
The Daily Mail writes:
Arsenal are checking on Belgian goalkeeper Guillaume Hubert and have sent scouts to watch the 22-year-old in action.
The report states that Arsenal sent scouts to see the young man in action at the weekend as his side Standard Liege played out a 2-2 draw with big rivals Gent.
The 22-year-old, born in Charleroi Belgium, is still finding his feet at Liege but has increasingly come to prominence at the club and has now made 3-0 appearacmes for them. He’s a commanding player who looks fearless and is already a great athlete.
He’s played all the way through the Belgian youth set up and will surely be providing stiff competition for the likes of Simon Mignolet in the senior side before too long.
Arsenal fans: is it time to start looking for a successor to Petr Cech to avoid the previous long-term goalkeeping problems?
