Turkish club closes in on forgotten Arsenal man

Alanyaspor is interested in signing Arsenal goalkeeper, Alex Runarsson.

The Iceland international has been a flop since he moved to the Emirates and he even spent the last campaign away from the Gunners on loan.

He is still not a part of the plans at the Emirates and has been looking for a new home.

A report on Tuttomercatoweb claims he is now close to joining Alanyaspor in the Turkish top flight.

The Turks believe he can contribute to their season and the report claims it will be a loan with no option or obligation to buy attached.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Runarsson is one of the rare occasions that Mikel Arteta has made a poor buy.

The Iceland international was relatively unknown when Arsenal signed him from Dijon and his dismal spell at the club shows why almost none of the club’s fans knew him.

We have added some fine players to our squad in this transfer window and more will likely still come.

A new goalkeeper should become our priority if he leaves and there are better goalies on the market that we can buy.

After that win against Crystal Palace at the weekend, there is a lot of pressure on arsenal to ensure we keep the momentum.

We need the best players in every psoition to win most of our fixtures.

  1. Willan, Runarsson, Niles, Xhaka, White, Auba, MG. Seems like quite a few bad decisions.

    He has though made the rare good decision. e. g. Tomi

      1. Yes when you factor in price then White is bad deal. Arteta’s man management has given too much losses to club. He is just buying players not developing any one. even he is very reluctant to give chances to Hale end players. He just want to buy superstars. Still by spending so much yet not qualified for CL.
