Despite Arsene Wenger’s assertation that he is happy with both of Arsenal’s goalkeepers there is a lingering doubt over whether Wojciech Szczesny will still be at the Emirates next season, which is probably why we have been constantly linked with Chelsea’s Petr Cech since he announced he is leaving the new Champions this summer.
If we are honest with ourselves, we will know that Mourinho will never sell Cech to Arsenal, and ex-Chelsea star Ray Wilkins agrees, but how many other top keepers are there available in the coming transfer window?
One that looks certain to be moving to a bigger club is the Stoke City stopper Asmir Begovic, and his team-mate Charlie Adam seems to think he will be leaving the Brittania Stadium, but doubts whether he would go anywhere that would leave him as a permanent bench-warmer. The Bosnian international has been linked with Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United recently, but Adam said: “Yeah. He’s a top goalkeeper. All of those clubs have goalkeepers though.
“Wherever he goes, he has to make the right decision.
“He had the opportunity to go to Chelsea a number two a couple of years ago, and he refused that because he wants to play. It’s a big decision on where he goes.”
Begovic in undoubtedly very talented, but nowhere in the same bracket as Petr Cech, but could he possibly be a threat to David Ospina if he was persuaded to come to Arsenal?
