Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has played down the prospect of signing a new goalkeeper in the summer as he believes that he has two good stoppers in David Ospina and Wojciech Szczesny at the club to compete at the highest level.

The Gunners have been constantly linked with a new goalkeeper in recent weeks, with various reports suggesting that the French manager could move for one of Petr Cech or Iker Casillas, who are both linked with moves away from Chelsea and Real Madrid respectively.

The former has made it clear that he will leave the Blues, as he does not want to be number two to Thibaut Courtois, while the latter has come under harsh criticism for his performances at the Santiago Bernabeu, but has made it clear that he wants to remain with the reigning European champions next season.

But Wenger has quashed the speculation and backed his keepers to perform at the top level for the club, and has pointed out that based on stats, Arsenal have one of the best goalkeepers in the Premier League.

"No, not necessarily," Wenger said, when asked about strengthening between the sticks in the summer, as quoted by Arsenal's official site.

"I believe in the goalkeepers I have. I believe that Szczesny is a very good goalkeeper and Ospina has come in and done a fantastic job. You look at the numbers in the Premier League and you look at who is top of all the goalkeepers and you will see it's Ospina," the Frenchman asserted.

However, reports have suggested that Szczesny could become frustrated with a bit-part role after seeing Ospina take over his numero uno role at the club, which could prompt Wenger to look for a new stopper.
