Premier League club Arsenal are ready to send Alex Runarsson away on-loan.
The Athletic says the Gunners have now deiced they’d be willing to loan out Runarsson, should they be able to bring in a replacement.
Arteta is said to believe the Iceland international would benefit from some regular playing time, in order to rebuild his confidence.
However, with funds limited, it may prove difficult for Arsenal to sign another goalkeeper this month.
The club wanted to bring in David Raya from Brentford earlier in the summer but their attempts were rebuffed by the Bees.
Given he only cost £1.5m from Dijon, the report adds that Runarsson was only initially viewed as a No 3 goalkeeper but Arteta still felt he was capable of providing back-up for Leno.
A host of European and Championship clubs would be interested in taking him on loan.
