Arsenal make approach to sign Real Madrid star for cut-price fee

Arsenal are reportedly interested in signing Real Madrid’s goalkeeper Andriy Lunin, as per Spanish media sources.

Lunin, 25, stepped up as Madrid’s first-choice keeper this season due to Thibaut Courtois’ ACL injury, which sidelined him for most of the season.

Carlo Ancelotti praised Lunin for his outstanding performance during Courtois’ absence, but Courtois returned to the starting lineup for Madrid’s Champions League final victory over Borussia Dortmund.

With only one year remaining on his contract, Lunin is at a crossroads regarding his future.

Cadena COPE reports that Madrid has offered Lunin a contract extension until 2029. However, Lunin is also considering offers from other European clubs, including Arsenal.

Lunin’s decision may be influenced by his strained relationship with Ancelotti, who has lauded Courtois as the world’s best goalkeeper.

The outcome of Ukraine’s Euro 2024 campaign this summer could also play a role in his decision-making process.

Arsenal may seek a new backup goalkeeper for David Raya if Aaron Ramsdale departs this summer.

Newcastle United have shown interest in Ramsdale but are deterred by Arsenal’s £30 million asking price.
