English Premier League heavyweights Arsenal are said to be after former Kilmarnock goalkeeper Daniel Bachmann – just two years after his Rugby Park stint (Sun).

The 27-year-old made headlines this summer after his performances for Austria at Euro 2020. Ajax and Arsenal are believed to be interested in signing the current Watford goalkeeper – but he will cost around £15 million.

Watford are refusing to sell Bachmann this summer as they return to the Premier League. West Ham United also enquired about Bachmann but it’s Arsenal and Ajax interest which is most prominent.

Bachmann kept 13 clean sheets last season to help Watford secure promotion from the Championship. The goalkeeper credits Kilmarnock as a big part of his development in football, excelling over 28 appearances under then-Rugby Park manager Steve Clarke.

 

Kilmarnock begin life in the Scottish Championship with an Ayrshire derby against Ayr United on Monday night.
