According to RMC in France, Arsenal have agreed a deal with Paris Saint Germain to sign goalkeeper coach Javi Garcia.
The Spaniard, who worked with new head coach Unai Emery at the Parc des Princes for a season and at Sevilla, will move to London Colney in the coming weeks to replace the outgoing Gerry Peyton.
The 38-year-old enjoyed a modest playing career, most notably representing Grenada in Spain’s second tier.
According to Get French Football News, the appointment, “represents a big loss for Les Parisiens, with Garcia having been very highly rated by the capital club.”
Last week, the BBC’s David Ornstein told Arseblog that Emery is expected to bring in a few more new faces to fill his coaching set-up in the coming weeks.
