- Arsenal are expected to submit a transfer bid for Keylor Navas
- The Real Madrid goalkeeper dropped a transfer hint after posting a farewell message
- Navas has lost his place between the sticks at Madrid to Courtois
Real Madrid star goalkeeper Keylor Navas has dropped a huge hint he could leave the Spanish club in January after posting a farewell message on Instagram.
The star keeper hinted at a potentially imminent departure on New Year’s Day after uploading a photo of himself with Madrid fans alongside the caption: ‘Thanks for everything!’
According to reports filtering through in the UK, Premier League side, Arsenal, are now angling for a move for the Costa Rican.
The Gunners are believed to have lodged a £14million offer to sign the shot-stopper as back-up at the Emirates.
Navas has lost his place between the sticks at the Santiago Bernabeu after the arrival of Belgian goal-keeper, Thibaut Courtois, who arrived from Chelsea.
The 32-year-old has not started a single match in the La Liga for Real Madrid since the second game of the season back in August.
He is therefore said to be desperate to play first-team football and Madrid are prepared to let him leave – especially with only 18 months left on his contract.
The UK Metro citing sources in Spain contend that Arsenal will now battle for the signature of Navas alongside Serie A giants, AS Roma.
Be that as it may, a move for Navas could leave room for curiosity at the Emirates, with Unai Emery having landed Bernd Leno in the summer and prioritised a new centre-back in January.
