When the Arsenal transfer news broke a few years ago about Arsene Wenger signing the veteran keeper Petr Cech from our Premier League and London rivals Chelsea, it was met with widespread approval from the Arsenal fans and the football media.
This was not just because the Czech is a fantastic keeper either, but because he was going to bring with him a winning mentality and also the experience of what it takes for a team to finish a long and arduous season on top of the table. Arsenal fans felt like they had won a jackpot using the gala casino promo-code, but it has not quite worked out the way we hoped, because Arsenal are still waiting to reclaim the crown we last won in 2004 and this season Cech has not always been at his best, although his competition David Ospina has been even worse.
So I am not all that surprised to see The Mirror reporting that Wenger is looking to sign a new goalkeeper in the summer transfer window, or that the man in the frame is the Leicester City star Kasper Schmeichel.
If the report is true then as well as it being a sure sign that Wenger is going to remain in charge, I think it also tells us that he is determined to address the problems that have stopped us mounting a serious title challenge. In all the issues with the Foxes this season that saw Claudio Ranieri sacked just months after his incredible season I think Schmeichel has really stood out as the one player who kept giving his all.
You often see him rallying the Foxes and keeping them in a game with his ability and determination and Arsenal could certainly do with a player like that, don’t you think?
