Arsenal are considering a summer move for Swansea City goalkeeper Michel Vorm, according to the Daily Mail.
The 28-year-old moved to the Liberty Stadium from Dutch side FC Utrecht last summer in a £1.5 million deal and has been one of the club's key players this season, helping the Welsh outfit to a mid-table finish in their debut season in the Premier League.
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has sent scouts to watch Vorm in recent weeks and is keen to sign the Dutch shot-stopper to provide competition to Wojciech Szczesny, according to the report.
Manuel Almunia will be out of contract next month and is expected to leave Arsenal on a free transfer, while Lukasz Fabianski is also heading out either on a season-long loan or a permanent move. Wenger feels the Pole has a future at the Emirates Stadium but the keeper wants regular first-team football.
Their departures will leave Arsenal short of experienced names in the goalkeeping department and hence the Gunners manager is keeping tabs on Vorm. The keeper had recently claimed that he is very happy with life at Swansea and is not interested in a move away from the club.
Vorm moved to dispel the reports suggesting that he could leave the Welsh club in the summer, saying that it was a dream move to sign for Brendan Rodgers' side.
"You never know what happens but I don't really think that I'm going to leave the club in the summer. My family loves it here. I cannot imagine that I'll leave the club after one season especially after the way we've performed. You never know what happens of course but I'm very happy here. It was a dream come true signing for Swansea to play in the Premier League," BBC quoted the Dutchman as saying.
"For me it was very easy to fit in. The style suits me. Brendan Rodgers for me is easy to work with. He's very clear the way he sees things. We've played some great matches, especially at home. The whole season through has been fantastic," he added.
Vorm was recently named in Holland's 36-man training squad for Euro 2012.
Swansea currently sit 12th in the league table with 44 points and they host Liverpool on Sunday in their last game of the season.
