Yet Another Goalkeeper Linked To Arsenal

By on April 2, 2011

Arsenal have been rumoured to be wanting to sign yet another goalkeeper, and this time it is for once an experienced player who’s in the picture for Arsenal.

The man in question is former Parkhead goalkeeper, Artur Boruc. Wenger is looking to bring some experience to his goalkeeping lineup and could get Boruc on the cheap, as the 31 year old is thought to be behind Sebastian Frey in the chase to be number 1 goalkeeper at Fiorentina.

After 5 years with the Scottish giants, Boruc left for Italy in search of better competition, but he has failed to impress in the Serie A, with only a knee injury to number 1 choice Frey giving Boruc his only run in at the First Team choice.

Arsenal have had several issues with their current crop of goalkeepers this season, having started with Manuel Almunia as first choice custodian, Wenger was forced to drop the Spaniard after a succession of errors and Lukasz Fabianski was then drafted in and although much improved may not be seen as number one starter, especially after being forced out of the side with a long term injury.

Youngster Wojciech Szczesny was then thrown in at the deep end and although clearly a player with great promise the 20 year old also committed errors before he too was struck down injury. Wenger had attempted to sign Mark Schwarzer last summer and has been linked with moves for Liverpool keeper Pepe Reina but a move for Boruc may be a more realistic and cost effective addition.

Everton and Tottenham are also rumoured to be interested in the Fiorentina man.

    Everyone but Wenger talks about us signing a keeper. Since we tried to sign a number of keepers last summer Fabianksi and Sczesney have both impressed at Arsenal and Mannone has impressed at Hull. The fact that we did not try to bring in a keeper in January makes me think that Wenger will stick with these 3, with Martinez and Shea as back up too, i can only see Wenger taking a keeper if he is FREE. Buffon may be, cos he is in his 30’s? but he certainly will not bring in a keeper that is going to halt the progress of Wojech and Vito.
