Toulouse keeper Alban Lafont is once again linked with a move to Arsenal, as he is reportedly seen by boss Arsene Wenger as an ideal long-term replacement for Petr Cech.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has reportedly identified Toulouse goalkeeper Alban Lafont as his preferred long-term replacement for Petr Cech.

The recently-turned 18-year-old was first linked with the Gunners last September, supposedly being seen as the man to fill current first-choice stopper Cech's gloves in the next couple of years.

With David Ospina likely to leave North London this summer and Wojciech Szczesny on Juventus's wishlist, Wenger is in desperate need of a new back-up.

French outlet Le 10 Sport claims that Arsenal remain keen on the France Under-20s international and could make their move during the current transfer window.

Despite his young age Lafont has already amassed more than 60 appearances for Toulouse over the past two seasons, keeping 11 clean sheets in the most recent of those campaigns.
