Navas is pushed out at Real Madrid
Since Thibaut Courtois left Chelsea to join Real Madrid over the summer, Keylor Navas has found himself pushed out at Real Madrid.
The 32-year-old has previously played 141 games for Los Blancos, in which he had kept 45 clean sheets.
Navas was also Madrid’s main keeper when they would go on to win three Champions League trophies.
However, this season, Navas has managed to start just two games for Madrid in La Liga.
Given his quality, Navas should not really be sitting on the sidelines every week.
Arsenal need a top keeper
This is something Arsenal boss Unai Emery looks to agree with.
According to Spanish outlet, El Confidencial, Emery wants to bring Navas to Arsenal in the summer window.
Madrid are said to want somewhere in the region of 14 million Euros for Navas, which is quite the bargain given his quality.

Also, while Arsenal have improved under Emery, their defensive capabilities are still not the best.
The Gunners have the worst defensive record of the top five Premier League teams, letting in 23 in 17 and if they really wish to fight for a UCL spot, they need to stop conceding so many goals.
Arsenal’s main keeper this season now seems to be Bernd Leno. While Leno is good at using his feet, something Emery likes in a keeper, his goalkeeping ability is not up there with someone like Navas.
Leno has also kept just two clean sheets in 11 league games this season.
