There could be some good news for Brentford fans very soon, as it seems that the young Arsenal keeper Wojceich Szczesny will be farmed out on loan again this season.
But perhaps it is more likely that Arsene Wenger will be looking for a Championship team this time around to further the experience of the Pole, who is hotly tipped to be Arsenal’s Number One in the not too distant future.
Three weeks ago, Wenger said: “Wojciech is a goalkeeper of huge quality. At the moment we want to play for the title so I believe he needs some more experience to compete directly for the first goalkeeper position. .......Read the full article here

After the amazing 6-5 win over Legia Warsaw at the weekend, the papers are full of Arsenal transfer rumours about goalkeepers, obviously based on the premise that Wenger will have been so incensed after conceding five goals that he just HAS to buy a replacement.
I laughed very hard when told about Arsenal putting in a £23m bid for Pepe Reina, but there are numerous reports now saying that it is completely true! Both the Sun, the Mail and numerous other websites are claiming to have inside knowledge that Wenger has put in a second bid of £25m for the Spaniard.

Arsene Wenger has categorically stated that he has a war chest to strengthen the Arsenal team this summer, and judging by all the transfer news in the papers lately, it would seem that a new goalkeeper is at the top of his list.
Having already been linked with Neuer, Akinfeev and Lloris, a report in todays Sunday Mirror says that Wenger is considering an £8m bid for the young Man City keeper Joe Hart, who has had a great season out on loan at Birmingham City. With Shay Given a guaranteed starter at City, Hart realises that he will have to stay away from the Eastlands to be sure of first team football, and he is young enough to become a long-time fixture at Arsenal. If Wenger can really get him for £8m it would be a fantastic investment. .......Read the full article here

The Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has been begged by Arsenal fans to find a top-class replacement for the 32 year-old Manuel Almunia, and today he gave his first hint that he may be looking for a replacement in the near future, but refuses to discuss his transfer plans until the end of the season.
“I don’t think it is the best moment to talk about that,” said Wenger.
“I never said that Almunia will be my long-term No 1. I think he is a great goalkeeper and he is in competition with Fabianski.
“But I want to see how we finish the season now so I don’t think it is the best period to talk about individual players.” .......Read the full article here
