Bear with me on this one Arsenal fans because it could get a little complicated. There are a lot of connected threads coming together in this article but if things work out as I think they might, it could all add to up to some very good news for the Gunners.
It is all about Arsenal and the keeper situation, assuming that Arsene Wenger does decide to bring in a new number one in the summer, or at least a player to really challenge our current incumbent David Ospina. While Arsenal are now back in the trophy game and showing great improvement in our squad, we are still a little behind the really big spenders when it comes to the transfer market.
So the last thing we want is to have to fight transfer battles with the likes of Man United and if they fail to hold on to David De Gea, that is exactly what is likely to happen. Unless they sign the Tottenham and France keeper Hugo Lloris and that is a real possibility according to a report in The Mirror.
So why would Arsenal not go for Lloris? Because he has no release clause and Daniel Levy would do anything to avoid selling their star to Arsenal. But they do not have quite the same reluctance to do business with United. Let them do business I say and then we will not have to fight United for the likes of Petr Cech or whoever Wenger goes for and the spuds lose one of their best players into the bargain. Perfect or what?
