Roma goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg is reportedly a target for Arsenal after falling out of favour in Italy.
The Netherlands international has been linked with the Gunners in the past, prior to his Ajax departure to Italy, and now the stopper is no longer first choice he has been linked with a move away from Serie A.
According to Italian media Gazzetta dello Sport, it is believed the Dutchman had been told he can find himself a new club during the winter transfer window, and the report mentioned he has been offered to both Arsenal and Fulham for a cut-price fee of £3.5million.
Stekelenburg would welcome a move away from Roma so he can remain the Dutch number one, with warming the bench in Italy not an option, so there are question marks over a move to Arsenal with Wojciech Szczęsny the undisputed first choice ‘keeper.
The Gunners are certainly in the market for a new stopper with Łukasz Fabiański set to depart this summer as his contract expires, with Vito Mannone and younster Damien Martinez the only options to backup Szczęsny, both of whom are hardly experienced or top quality.

A more experienced goalkeeper in the mould of Stekelenburg would be a welcomed addition to the squad, but as he is seeking regular game time a move to the Emirates seems highly unlikely.
