Arsenal are reportedly interested in Leicester City's Kasper Schmeichel, despite manager Arsene Wenger, earlier stating that he is happy with his current goalkeepers, Wojciech Szczesny and David Ospina.

Szczesny, who has been Arsenal's first-choice goalkeeper since the 2011/12 season, lost his place in the starting eleven after he made a series of errors that led to Arsenal's 2–0 defeat in Southampton in January.

Ospina has been doing pretty well since, but there are still doubts over whether he can be the Gunners' permanent first-choice shot-stopper, especially after his recent performances during Arsenal's recent 0-1 Premier League defeat against Swansea City.

Due to this season, Wenger is believed to be in the hunt for a new goal-keeper this summer.

Chelsea's Petr Cech, who has been granted permission by the Blues to hold talks with other clubs ahead of a possible move this summer, is believed to be Arsenal's preferred target, but it is highly unlikely that he will be moving to the Emirates, with Jose Mourinho stating that he will not be selling the Czech international to a Premier League rival.

As a result the Gunners will probably be looking at other alternatives, and according to the Daily Mail, they are reportedly interested in Leicester City's Schmeichel.

The 28-year-old, who is the son of Manchester United legend Peter Schmeichel, has been very impressive for the Foxes of late, playing a vital role as Leicester City have gone on to win six out of their last seven Premier League fixtures.

However, the former Manchester City man, who has been with Leicester City since 2011, will not be available on the cheap due to him still having three more years remaining on his current contract.

Meanwhile, Arsenal have reportedly been dealt with a blow in their pursuit of Palermo striker Paulo Dybala as the 21-year-old is reportedly closing in on a move to Serie A champions Juventus.

Dybala, who joined Palermo from Argentine side Instituto ACC in the summer of 2012, has been very impressive this season, scoring 13 times in 33 league games to help his side close in on a mid-table finish, following their promotion the Serie A in 2013/14.

Arsenal were believed to be leading the race for his signature this summer, but according to the Daily Mirror, the Argentina international has reportedly opted to remain in Italy and join Champions League finalists Juventus for a transfer fee believed to be around £23 million (with an additional £5.5 million in add-ons and bonuses).
