Arsenal reportedly step up their interested in signing Barcelona goalkeeper Neto this summer.

Arsenal have reportedly stepped up their interest in signing Barcelona goalkeeper Neto this summer.

Mikel Arteta has already made moves in the transfer market, signing Nuno Tavares from Benfica and Albert Sambi Lokonga from Anderlecht, though the Gunners are keen to do more business in the coming weeks.

A goalkeeper who is good with their feet is one position that Arteta is targeting as he looks to provide more competition for current number one Bernd Leno.

According to HITC, Arsenal are set to battle north London rivals Tottenham Hotspur for his signature, though Neto's agent considers the Gunners as 'the most viable' option.

Barcelona signed the 31-year-old from Valencia in 2019 for £22.45m, though if the Catalan club were to sell him this summer, they are unlikely to receive a similar transfer fee.

Neto has just one senior cap for Brazil and has made only 17 appearances across all competitions for Barcelona, including 12 last season.
