A number of Arsenal fans have taken to Twitter to comment on reports from Football London last week claiming that the Gunners remain keen on Freddie Woodman.
Mikel Arteta is reportedly keen to sign a new goalkeeper in this window. Alex Runarsson has struggled since arriving at the Emirates in the summer.
And it appears that Woodman is on their radar. According to Football London, Arsenal have been monitoring the 23-year-old since the end of last season.
Woodman is currently enjoying his second loan spell at Swansea City. And no goalkeeper has kept more clean sheets in the Championship this season. In fact, he is four clear of his nearest rival.
It will be interesting to see if Newcastle have any interest in selling the youngster. He is yet to make his Premier League debut for the club. But he appears to have an incredibly bright future ahead.
What may complicate matters for the Magpies is the presence of Martin Dubravka and Karl Darlow. Unless one is set to leave in the summer, Woodman would seemingly be in danger of finding himself as third choice should he remain on Tyneside next season.
Plenty of Arsenal fans would be happy to see him arrive at the Emirates this month. Many believe that he is going to be a fantastic goalkeeper in the coming years.
Some seemingly see him taking over from Bernd Leno at some stage. And if Newcastle cannot show him a path to the first-team, Woodman would surely be forgiven for being tempted by Arsenal’s reported interest.
With that in mind, here is how some of the fans have reacted to the links…
He would be a good bit of business. Can’t imagine the price would be too high, saving money for finding our elusive #10.

I hope this happens. Just need to see Newcastle & Swansea let him move to Arsenal in January rather than the summer.

would be very happy with this, class goalkeeper and means we could sell Runarsson on for 50p and cut our losses https://t.co/XlZpIfCPRi

Woodman would be a fantastic choice. Newcastle would be open to selling since they have Darlow and Dubravka. https://t.co/kOzmuj1O9R

This would be a fantastic signing to solve the goalkeeping dilemma. Newcastle have two class keepers in Darlow and Dubravka so don’t need Woodman so he should be available and also cheap due to his lack of PL experience. Very high ceiling too. Good business. https://t.co/NfBvNvClvp
