Scouting Guide

Julio Cesar is a goalkeeper for English Premier League club Queens Park Rangers.

He sports a big frame, making him capable of covering much of the goal.  However, he is also athletic and quick enough to make excellent reaction saves. 

Cesar owns his box and can pick off crosses and corners with ease. 


Where Next?

If all indications are true, the Gunners could be employing Cesar very soon. 

The Mirror suggests that Arsenal might be the most likely destination for Cesar.  A move to the Emirates would be excellent for the Brazilian as he prepares to host the World Cup in 2014.
