ARSENAL and Chelsea are battling it out to bring RB Leipzig goalkeeper Peter Gulacsi to London, according to reports.
The 27-year-old has impressed in Germany since arriving at the Red Bull Arena in 2015, and could be set for a return to England in 2018.
According to ESPN, the two Premier League clubs sent scouts to watch the Hungarian international in action during the 2-0 loss against Bayern Munich on Saturday.
The report states that Arsene Wenger is already looking at replacements for current No 1 Petr Cech.
The Czech shot-stopper has entered the final 18 months of his contract at the Emirates, and the Gunners know they need to have a successor in place.
While Chelsea fear that they may lost Belgian keeper Thibaut Courtois to Real Madrid.
The ex-Atletico Madrid loanee is yet to agree a new deal at Stamford Bridge as Los Blancos monitor his situation.
Gulacsi has starred for RB Leipzig this season – as they have started the Bundesliga season in impressive fashion again.
They sit third in the table – four points behind leaders Bayern – with Gulacsi conceding just 11 goals in nine top-flight games.
A return to the Premier League could interest the two-time Austrian Bundesliga after failing to make an appearance for Liverpool during his six-season stay.
Gulacsi has revealed he left Anfield in 2013 in an attempt for first team football.
He has since become one of the most sought-after goalkeepers since leaving Britain – earning 14 caps for the Hungarian national side since making his debut in 2014.
According to German magazine Kicker, Guacsi is the top-performing keeper in the Bundesliga.
