DAVID RAYA is edging closer to completing a move from Brentford to Arsenal.
Talks between the clubs have reportedly hit a key stage after the Gunners had a bid rejected earlier this week.
Brentford knocked back a £23million approach from Arsenal as it fell short of their asking price.
However, Fabrizio Romano reports that new talks between the two clubs are set to take place on Sunday.
Negotiations have been advancing well and are now at the final stage.
Raya has already agreed personal terms with Arsenal ahead of a move.

Raya is into the final year of his contract at Brentford and played all 38 of their Premier League matches last term.
During those games, he kept 12 clean sheets, the fifth highest tally in the league.
