Arsenal are interested in pursuing a move for promising Legia Warsaw goalkeeper Radoslaw Majecki, according to the Daily Standard.
The 19-year-old Pole has been on the Gunners radar for a number of months and is believed to have been watched by more than one member of Arsenal’s backroom staff since he broke into the first team at Legia last year.
According to reports, it is believed that one of the goalkeeping coaches at Arsenal attended a recent Poland U-20 game with the sole aim of determining the youngster’s suitability for the Premier League.
The coach’s verdict is that he is yet to attain the level required to play in the Premier League and as such would probably loan him back until the end of the season if they decide to sign him in the summer.
The Gunners currently have four first team goalkeepers but could be down to just one by the end of the season with David Ospina hoping to complete a permanent move to Napoli at the end of his loan spell there while strong interests in Emiliano Martinez means he could be leaving the club in the summer also.
Petr Cech would be out of contract with the Gunners at the end of the season and has announced his retirement.
Bernd Leno who has been first choice since he replaced Cech will soon need an understudy and Majecki might just be that understudy.
It won’t be the first time the Gunners will do business in Poland, having previously signed Fabianski, Szczeney and Krystian Beilik from the European nation.
