Arsenal have been linked with a free transfer move for Spanish goalkeeper Adrian. The former West Ham shotstopper, who has been released from his club in search of regular first-team football, is wanted as a backup goalkeeper for Bernd Leno at the Emirates.
Adrian arrived at West Ham in 2013 from Real Betis and went on to play over 125 games for the club over a 6 year career with the Hammers. The 32-year-old had indicated that he would like to stay in London and the recent interest of Arsenal comes as a surprise, with Crystal Palace also linked with a move for the 6 foot 3 player.
Adrian found first-team opportunities limited last year as Lukasz Fabianski took the number 1 spot in the Premier League in every game, leaving Adrian resigned to just five appearances in domestic cup competitions. The Hammers were said to be open to offering Adrian a new deal, but the keeper rejected the idea of extending his stay.
