Arsenal maintain pursuit of Brentford keeper Raya despite closing in on signing Runarsson from Dijon (reliability: 4 stars)

According to ESPN, Arsenal have not given up the pursuit of David Raya from Brentford even though the Championship side have turned down their £10m bid.

However, the Bees might be pressured to sell if an improved offer arrives due to the implications of the Covid-19 pandemic, especially in view of the 25-year-old's desire to join Arsenal.

The Gunners are in search of a backup to Bernd Leno following Emi Martinez's departure to Aston Villa for £20m.

The Telegraph along with other multiple top sources has reported that the north Londoners have signed Runar Runarsson for £1.5m from Dijon. However, it seems that our search of a decent backup hasn't stopped there.

Probably, Runarsson is probably he's seen as a replacement for Matt Macey as a third-choice option, while the club's coaching staff prefer to see a more reliable and proven second-choice goalie.

Mikel Arteta has confirmed that the club might sign two keepers during this window.
