are keeping tabs on goalkeeper as they look to provide Petr Cech with more competition for a first-team place, according to the Evening Standard.

We reported last week that Cech’s agent Viktor Kolar expects the player to continue as an important first team player for Arsenal until his contract expires in 2019, but the Standard seem to be adamant that will make a move for a younger keeper in the summer.

Cech will turn 35 in May, and the Daily Mail reported last week that (29) was being lined up as a potential successor to the Czech .

Manager has however denied that the Gunners have any interest in the stopper. The interest in Pickford looks to be more genuine, if the Standard are to be believed. The 22 year old has established as the number one goalkeeper with the Black Cats this season but a knee injury has kept him out since late December.
