I know I am really late in saying this but Arsenal should have signed Mark Schwarzer after his contract expired at Fulham. by Stefan
There has been a growing sense of unease among Arsenal fans recently, mainly due to the lack of any offical confirmation that the club has signed, or even agreed to sign, any new players. We were all expecting the Gunners to be doing deals left, right and centre, and the media has been full of stories about players `about to` or `very close` to a summer transfer to the Emirates.
Mannone on his way out!
Arsenal could be set to lose yet another player listed as deadwood this summer with Vito Mannone being lined up by Sunderland as a possible replacement for Simon Mignolet.
Most of us have been expecting some sort of change to the Arsenal goalkeeping situation this summer. There have been transfer rumours linking the club to a vast array of possible transfer targets, while the media have speculated about whether Wojciech Szczesny might leave if he feels that his first team place is being threatened.
Arsenal still trying for Barca keeper? by AH
The Express has today reported today that Arsenal have opened talks with Barcelona and the appropriate agent over the possibility of Victor Valdes moving to North London with the Gunners this summer.
Arsene Wenger has revealed that Lukasz Fabianski has suffered bruising to his ribs and could be doubtful for tonights crucial match against Everton, but he will not decide who plays for Arsenal this evening until the very last minute.
It is no secret that Arsenal are looking at new goalkeeping options for next season. Arsene Wenger put his faith in Wojciech Szczesny, but the Polish international has not really responded in the right way. Assuring him of a starting place in the team has not helped his form, so it looks like Wenger is going to bring some strong competition into the club, hopefully an experienced keeper who Szczesny will have to work his socks off to dislodge.
Wojciech Szczesny is undoubtedly the best goalkeeper that Arsenal have got in the squad, and since he came back from injury and replaced Vito Mannone, the Gunners have benefited and been much better defensively. There have been calls, however, for Arsenal to bring in another keeper, with more experience, to push the Polish international and help him learn from the older player in training.
