Arsenal extends an offer to a prominent player from Real Madrid.

Arsenal allegedly extended a proposal to Real Madrid's goalkeeper Andriy Lunin.

The 25-year-old Ukrainian, who filled in as Real Madrid’s main goalkeeper this season due to Thibaut Courtois’ ACL surgery, now faces a crucial career decision. Ancelotti praised Lunin’s stellar performance but emphasized Courtois as “the best goalkeeper in the world” before the Champions League final, opting for the Belgian over the unwell Lunin.

Currently, Lunin has one year left on his Real Madrid contract. While the club offered him an extension until 2029, Lunin is contemplating his options with interest from top European clubs like Arsenal.

Lunin’s standout performances this season include 21 La Liga matches with 17 goals conceded and 10 clean sheets. His heroics in the Champions League, notably saving two penalties against Manchester City, boosted Real Madrid into the semis.

The decision on Lunin’s future is likely delayed until after Ukraine’s Euro 2024 campaign. Meanwhile, Arsenal’s pursuit is part of their goalkeeping reinforcement plan. With Aaron Ramsdale possibly leaving and David Raya’s permanent move from Brentford, Arsenal seeks a reliable backup. Ramsdale, with limited starts this season, is attracting interest from Newcastle United.
