Júlio Cesar appears set to secure a transfer to Arsenal this summer after Harry Redknapp confirmed that the goalkeeper is on the verge of a Queens Park Rangers exit.

The Gunners have been heavily linked with a move for the Brazil international in recent weeks as Arsene Wenger looks to bolster his options between the posts, amid reports Vito Mannone is close to securing a transfer to Sunderland.

And QPR boss Redknapp has now confirmed that the 33-year-old, who is currently on international duty with Brazil at the Confederations Cup, is on his way out of Loftus Road following the Hoops’ relegation from the Premier League.

“Júlio Cesar will move on,” Redknapp told talkSPORT.

“He’s a top class goalkeeper, Brazil’s number one. He’s been in great for Brazil and I presume there’s a big club out there for him.

“He won’t want to play in the Championship, he’s a goalkeeper for a big club.”

Cesar, who joined QPR from Inter Milan on a four-year deal last summer, made 24 appearances for the west London club in 2012-13.
