With the ongoing Arsenal rumours suggesting that Arsene Wenger is favourite to sign the unhappy Chelsea keeper Petr Cech, the question arises of who will be moved on to make space for the brilliant shot-stopper?
This is not the first time that the Arsenal and Poland international star Wojciech Szczesny has found himself in a bit of an awkward situation with his manager. Arsene Wenger revealed today in the press conference ahead of the home game against Stoke City on Sunday, that the keeper had apologised for apparently smoking a cigarette in the showers after the defeat at Southampton, but I wonder just how thin ice he is really on.
There is little doubt that Wojciech Szczesny, the Poland international who seriously tests your spelling skills, had his best year in an Arsenal shirt last season. He was unlucky not feature in the FA cup triumph at Wembley, after Arsene Wenger had handed the domestic cup duties to Lukasz Fabianski, but there was no doubt that the 24-year old was the undisputed number one for Arsenal.
Not too many Arsenal fans will have been any more than vaguely aware of the Mexico international Gullermo Ochoa before yesterday. But the 28-year old keeper is the darling of the World Cup media today after producing a string of fine saves to deny the Samba boys of Brazil.
It is a risk versus reward situation for Arsenal, but if it worked out for us it would be a real transfer coup for the Gunners. As we know from the Arsenal transfer rumours, one of the main jobs for Arsene Wenger and his scouts is to find a replacement for the Polish international keeper Lukasz Fabianski, who has joined Premier League club Swansea City.
