Arsenal are close to completing the signing of Dijon goalkeeper Rúnar Alex Rúnarsson, who is set to replace Emiliano Martínez as the Gunners' backup shot stopper.

Arsenal are also believed to be keen on Dijon team-mate Mounir Chouiar, a 21-year-old winger who managed six goals in 26 appearances in his debut season last year.

Brentford goalkeeper David Raya was Arteta's preferred replacement for Martínez, and 90min learned that Arsenal opened talks to try and get a deal done.

After an impressive run in the first team towards the end of last season, Martínez made it clear that he did not plan on hanging around unless Arsenal could offer him first-team football, but with Mikel Arteta ready to commit to Bernd Leno, Martínez is close to sealing a £20m move to Aston Villa.

The 25-year-old Iceland international is expected to be available for around £1.5m, and with Arsenal looking to save money to fund other transfers, the Gunners are prepared to push ahead with their pursuit of Runarsson.

During his two seasons in Ligue 1, Runarsson has forged a reputation as a goalkeeper who likes to play with the ball at his feet, which is understood to have endeared him to Arteta.

Fabrizio Romano goes one step further and suggests the deal is already done, confidently stating that Runarsson will be the man to replace Martínez.
