Mikel Arteta reveals plans to sign new goalkeeper amid Runar Alex Runarsson exit rumours

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has confirmed that the club are looking to sign a new goalkeeper during the January transfer window amid talks that Runar Alex Runarsson will leave the club after just four months. Runarsson joined the Gunners in the summer transfer window after Emi Martinez left the club for Aston Villa, though he was never Arsenal’s top target and was always seen as more of a third-choice keeper. The 25-year-old has made 5 appearances and kept 2 clean sheets for Arsenal. Arsenal are reportedly looking to send the goalkeeper out on loan. However, with Matt Macey also having left the Gunners, Arteta's side will need reinforcements in goal. Asked if Macey’s departure will see a new keeper come in, Arteta said: "We are assessing the situation with the three positions on the goalkeeping area and we will find a different solution, probably in this window." On whether Runarsson would be sent out on loan, he replied: "There is nothing there yet." "We are assessing what is going to happen with the three positions. "The discussion we had in the summer within the club are a little bit different to what actually happened because of the transfer window and the situation that developed with Emi. "We didn’t have much time to do what we really wanted to do and we decided to assess the situation in this window which is what we are trying to do and we will make a decision on how we want to move forward in those three positions." source - Metro / Join us on Telegram
