Arsenal have not given up hope of signing Brentford goalkeeper David Raya despite the Championship club refusing to entertain any offers and believe they may have found a compromise.

Manager Thomas Frank said his number one was 'not for sale' last week, though Arsenal remain interested and are considering a new approach to convince Brentford to come to the negotiating table.

According to The Athletic's David Ornstein, Arsenal are willing to sign Raya for a big fee now and then loan him back to Brentford for the 2020/21 season.

More: Arsenal FC. Of course, Arsenal would still need to sign a short-term backup goalkeeper for the current campaign, which is where Icelandic shot-stopper Runar Alex Runarsson comes in.

Even if Arsenal wrap up a deal for Runarsson now, they are still likely to pursue Raya and then loan him back to Brentford - though after landing a big fee for Ollie Watkins, the Championship side are not in need of money and will only accept a large offer.
