Manchester United and Arsenal are reportedly set to do battle for the signature of Galatasaray goalkeeper Fernando Muslera this summer.

The Uruguayan international was first linked to the Gunners, with him being touted as a backup option if they failed to land primary target Petr Cech from Chelsea, but now the Red Devils, who are likely to lose David De Geal to Real Madrid have also entered the race, according to the Mirror.

Muslera has been impressive for Galatasaray and is a regular for his national team, and will cost the Premier League duo around £15m.

Louis van Gaal will have to invest in a top quality stopper to replace the Spanish international, who is looking likely to join the 10-time European champions in the summer. United have been linked with moves for various top 'keepers including Tottenham's Hugo Lloris and Cech.

Arsene Wenger, on the other hand, has distanced himself from a move for a goalkeeper, but with the Gunners targeting a title challenge next season, reports claim that the Frenchman will look to bring a new face between the sticks to challenge David Ospina, putting current number two Wojciech Szczesny's future in doubt.

The Turkish giants are aware of interest in their goalkeeper, and are resigned to losing him in the summer, but report suggests that the club are adamant that any interested side match their £15m valuation to sign Muslera.

Meanwhile, the Uruguayan international has refused to get drawn into speculation regarding his departure from Turkey and has made it clear that his current focus is with the national team, who are preparing to defend their Copa America title, with the tournament about to get underway in Chile.
