Arsenal Banter brings you latest update on Arsenal news from top media sites like Daily Mail, Metro, The Express, The Independent, The Telegraph, SkySports and so on.
Arsenal have captured the headlines with their activity in the transfer market this summer but they could find themselves with work to do in January, according to a former Chelsea man.
Ex-Blues ace Tony Cascarino wrote in The Times that he believes current Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech is past his prime and has little to offer the club. He doubts if he will still be the first choice come season end, adding he feels David Ospina is not good enough to replace him.
“I’m not sure that Petr Cech will be No 1 at Arsenal come the end of season. The 35-year-old is nowhere near the level he was and rather than using his experience to compensate for fading ability he looks increasingly shaky in goal.”
“He’s playing on reputation but I’m not sure David Ospina is good enough to replace him. If this becomes a problem Arsene Wenger may have to look at buying a goalkeeper in January.”
Cech was at for Leicester City’s equalizing goal on Friday evening and was heavily criticized form the two other goals the Gunners conceded, though Arsenal worked hard to claim all three points on the opening night of the new Premier League season.
