Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger could reignite interest in Real Madrid keeper Iker Casillas in January, according to reports on the continent. Wojciech Szczesny looked unimpressive as he shipped two goals in the 2-0 Champions League defeat at Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday night and is not currently being pushed for his place in the starting line-up. Arsenal explored a move for Casillas in the summer but decided against bringing the veteran to north London. There are claims however that Wenger could be tempted to go back in for the Spain legend in the January transfer window to provide Szczesny with competition.
Monaco are also keeping tabs on the situation and have the capacity to make a big money offer for Casillas, who has recently won his place back in Carlo Ancelotti’s side. Casillas was subjected to derisory whistles and boos from fans in Real’s last home league match, a 2-1 defeat against city rivals Atletico Madrid. But Real supporters didn’t hesitate in commending his work on Tuesday night when he was called into action against Basle and made an excellent reflex save. With rumours of Casillas’s desired departure gathering speed, Real Madrid president Florentino Perez curiously chose this week to present the keeper with a memento for his 15 years service with the club.
