The Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger continues his chase for top quality players in his attempt to avoid events like the ones from last summer where the Gunners saw themselves forced to lose Fabregas and Nasri with virtually no time to negotiate deals with other players who were supposed to replace them.
Wenger wants to transfer the most part of the players he’s after early on in the summer and get ready to hit the Premiership hard next season, and it seems that he just added a new name on his already unusually big transfer list.
This time it’s not a star like Hazard, Vertonghen, Gotze or Podolski who are also wanted by Wenger, but it’s a young hotshot who is sure to prove his skills big time in the future.
Wenger knows that second string keeper Fabianski is likely to leave the club in the summer because he grew frustrated by the fact that he can’t seem to be able to catch the first team in front of Szczesny ever since his injury, so the Frenchman wants to have a replacement for him.
Arsenal seems set to transfer Birmingham’s extraordinarily skilled young 19-year-old goalkeeper Jack Butland who also represents the English national team side at the U-21 level. Szczesny should really be worried about his spot if Butland is going to be brought as he’s one of the most promising goalkeepers in the world at his age.
