Arsenal want to sign Real Madrid and Spain keeper Iker Casillas before the end of the World Cup.

Arsene Wenger is on the lookout for a new keeper to provide competition for Wojciech Szczesny after the departure of Lukasz Fabianski to Swansea.

And Madrid-based paper AS claim that Wenger's number one target is Casillas, who was frequently rotated with Diego Lopez by Real boss Carlo Ancelotti last season.
