Here are today”s Gunners stories from the Daily Mirror…

Gunners keep an eye on Neto

Arsene Wenger is eyeing a new No1 keeper, which will send a clear message that Wojciech Szczesny”s Arsenal career could be over.

Boss Wenger is keeping tabs on Fiorentina”s Brazilian star Neto, who has also been a target for Liverpool and Juventus.

Neto, 25, has admitted publicly he will leave the Italian club when his contract expires at the end of the season and Serie A champions Juve are trying to sign him, but the Gunners are clearly in the market for a new goalkeeper.

Chelsea hero Petr Cech, 32, could be available in the summer after losing his place as first choice to Thibaut Courtois and could be another target for Wenger, who tried to sign the Czech international before he moved to Stamford Bridge in 2004.

Another one that got away

Arsene Wenger has revealed Arsenal missed out on signing Angel Di Maria for NOTHING.

Argentinian superstar Di Maria, 26, joins a long list of big names – including Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Yaya Toure and Zlatan Ibrahimovic – who nearly joined the Gunners when they were youngsters.

But Wenger says the deal fell through because they could not get Di Maria a work permit – and they now face the same battle as they try to sign Villarreal”s Brazilian defender Gabriel Paulista.

"We had identified Di Maria when he was 17," he said. "We wanted him to come here. So he goes to Portugal [with Benfica], from Portugal he goes to Spain. Why? Because he could not get a work permit."

Paulista a “50/50″ chance

Arsene Wenger has claimed Arsenal have got a “50-50 chance” of signing Brazilian defender Gabriel Paulista.

Gunners boss Wenger confirmed the club are in negotiations with Villarreal over signing Paulista but they still face a battle to get a work permit for the 24-year-old.

Paulista has never represented Brazil, does not have a European passport and Wenger admits the clubs have yet to agree a fee.

Wenger said: “[It’s] 50-50 at this moment, yes. We respect the rules in England. When you buy a player who does not fulfil the criteria and needs a work permit, you go in front of a commission and they tell you yes or no.

“We will accept that, we have to respect the rules that are in this country. After are the rule sight or not, that can be discussed. At the moment the rules are like that, you have to go in front of a committee for a work permit.

United to hijack Paulista move?

Manchester United are preparing a last gasp bid to sign Villarreal centre-back Gabriel Paulista, report the Daily Star.

Mark ThompsonCrafty: Could Van Gaal make a late move for Paulista? 

The uncapped Brazilian 24, has been repeatedly linked with a move away from Spain in recent months, and is reportedly on the verge of joining .

But there has been a huge twist in the deal.

Sources in Spain claim the Gunners” Premier League rivals Manchester United are attempting to hijack Arsene Wenger”s for the defender, who moved to El Madrigal in 2013.

Red Devils boss Louis van Gaal is said to be a huge admirer of the former Vitoria star, and according to reports, is willing to match any offer made by the .

Sergio Ramos boost

The Metro report Arsenal have been given a huge boost in their hunt for Sergio Ramos.

Ramos, who was the subject of an approach from Arsenal earlier this month, has been in talks over a new deal to stay at Madrid.

But, it seems, he has rejected fresh terms this week, with Real refusing to give him a big pay rise, and the news has alerted the Gunners.

Arsene Wenger is after a new centre-back, and while Gabriel Paulista looks set to arrive, the Frenchman has not ruled out making further signings.

Klopp talks Reus

Borussia Dortmund boss Jurgen Klopp has admitted it would be his fault should Marco Reus leave next summer, report the Express.

The German forward has been heavily linked with a move to heavyweights Arsenal.

Reus has a £20m buy-out clause in his contract at the end of the season, and recent reports suggest he could look to leave if Dortmund fail to qualify for the .

On the possibility of the 25-year-old leaving, Klopp said: "I don”t think any of our players will leave if we don”t qualify for the Champions League next season.

"If Reus does ask to leave then I will have made a mistake with him."
