According to Superdeporte, Valencia are rivalling Arsenal for the signature of Barcelona goalkeeper Neto.

The one-capped Brazil international is expected to leave Barca this summer.

The 30-year-old has made just three appearances in all competitions this season.

Superdeporte claim Barca are willing to sell him for at least £18 million.

Neto, meanwhile, is open to joining Valencia but the Spanish editorial say Premier League club Arsenal pose a threat with Mikel Arteta keen to strengthen his goalkeeping options.

The Gunners have Bernd Leno as their regular number one.

The German shot-stopper, however, has lacked competition this season. Emiliano Martinez has featured in cup games, but the 27-year-old isn’t exactly of high calibre.

Neto would be a step up and could provide greater strength to Arsenal’s squad.

The Brazilian was a regular at Valencia prior to joining Barcelona in 2019, making 67 La Liga appearances over two seasons.

Arsenal have also been linked with Paris Saint-Germain’s Alphonse Areola (Mundo Deportivo).

The reports suggest the Gunners have made another goalkeeper a top priority this summer.
