Arsenal are reportedly keeping close tabs on Eintracht Frankfurt goalkeeper Kevin Trapp as Arsene Wenger looks to bring in a new goalkeeper in January.
Although the Gunners already have the likes of David Opsina and Emiliano Martinez amongst their ranks, Wenger is reportedly eager to bring someone to provide some competition to his current first choice Wojciech Szscesny.
Earlier North London were being linked with a January move for Petr Cech, but that deal seems to have hit a dead end after Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho made it clear that he would not be selling any player to arch rivals like Arsenal.
As a result, Arsenal were forced to look at other options, and according to the Daily Star, the Gunners are now considering a move for Trapp.
The 24-year-old, who moved from FC Kaiserslautern to Eintracht Frankfurt for an undisclosed amount has been impressive in the Bundesliga and would cost the Gunners only £4 million should they decide to sign him.
However, the North London club are not going to be able to sign Trapp that easily, as a number of sides -- Liverpool, Juventus, Fiorentina, Napoli, Inter Milan, Borussia Monchengladbach and Red Bull Leipzig -- are reportedly interested in getting his signature.
Meanwhile, Arsenal are sweating on the fitness of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain as they have to reportedly wait until Saturday to find out whether he will be available for their Premier League clash against Liverpool on Sunday.
The 21-year-old midfielder has still been unable to train due to the groin injury he picked up against Newcastle last weekend.
Oxlade-Chamberlain being unavailable on Sunday would be a big blow to the Gunners as the likes of Aaron Ramsey, Jack Wilshere and Mikel Arteta are already on the sidelines.
Due to this reason, Wenger is hoping that the England midfielder will be able to shake off his injury before Arsenal's clash against Liverpool.
"We hope that Oxlade-Chamberlain will be fit. That's what we'll see on Saturday after a test. He's not in training at the moment," the Frenchman told Sky Sports.
