Arsenal reportedly hold discussions regarding the potential addition of Dijon goalkeeper Runar Alex Runarsson, who would replace the outgoing Emiliano Martinez.

Dijon goalkeeper Runar Alex Runarsson has reportedly emerged as a transfer target for Arsenal.

With Emiliano Martinez on the brink of joining Aston Villa in a £16m deal, Gunners boss Mikel Arteta is in the market for a replacement.

Throughout last week, the Premier League giants were linked with an approach for David Raya, who may be allowed to leave Brentford for the right price.

However, the Daily Mail claims that Arsenal have made contact with Dijon regarding the availability of Iceland international Runarsson.

The 25-year-old, who has made 36 appearances in Ligue 1 since 2018, was an unused substitute for his nation's recent fixtures against England and Belgium.

Runarsson has less than two years left on his contract, a factor which could leave Arsenal regarding him as a cheaper alternative to Raya.
