Arsenal are reported to be keeping close tabs on Villarreal goalkeeper Diego Lopez.

The Gunners have long been linked with a new shot-stopper and seemingly they are considering a summer swoop.

Spanish sources claim they have been assessing Lopez for the last two months and reports have been good.

Lopez has repeatedly been linked with a move to England, with Tottenham and Manchester United both mooted as admirers in previous seasons.

Now Arsenal are the latest side to be linked, but the player himself insists he is more than happy to stay at El Madrigal.

"I am tired of the rumours. My present and future is Villarreal," he stated.
