Arsenal have long been linked with a summer approach for the Spain international after seeing him slip behind Diego Lopez in the Santiago Bernabeu pecking order.

They are one of several clubs reported to hold an interest, with Casillas still widely considered to be among the finest shot-stoppers in world football.

He has, however, spent his entire career to date with Real and would find it difficult to tear himself away from his home-town club.

Casillas has been asking questions about life in England, though, and Cazorla has made it clear that the World Cup winner would be welcome in north London if he does decide to move on when the transfer window re-opens.

He told Sport360: "I've told Iker I would like him to join Arsenal. But so far he has just been curious about my experience in England.

"His situation is very complicated, but he has to make a decision.

"Lots of clubs want him, including Arsenal.

"But I think it would be very difficult to leave Real because he knows what he has at Madrid, and what he could find at another club."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
