Arsenal are set to miss out on Zorya Luhansk goalkeeper Andriy Lunin, according to the Gazzetta Dello Sport.

The Italian newspaper report that Inter Milan are close to securing the 19 year old for €6m (£5.5m), but they have had to fight off late interest from both the Gunners and Juventus.

Lunin only moved from Dnipro in the summer, and despite only being a teenager, he has already had two seasons as a first team regular at senior level.

The stopper also got his first cap for Ukraine last month, playing the full 90 minutes in a friendly against Saudi Arabia.

Arsenal have been looking to recruit a young keeper, and they have also been linked with Athletic Bilbao’s Kepa Arrizabalaga and Toulouse’s Alban Lafont in recent months.

With the club likely to miss out Lunin, they will now have to move on to other targets as they seek a long term replacement for Petr Cech.
