There is no denying the fact that Arsenal need to sign a new goalkeeper.
Lukasz Fabianski was in goal as Arsenal conceded 3 goals in the space of ten minutes to hand Wigan an unlikely three points at the DW Stadium this afternoon.
Many Arsenal fans questioned Arsene Wenger’s decision not to sign a new keeper during the January transfer window and I think it’s fair to say that if the Gunners had a decent keeper, they could easily be winning the Premier League at the moment.
As it is, Arsenal now have little chance of lifting the title at the end of the season with the Londoners now 6 points behind Chelsea with just 3 games to play.
It has been announced that Wenger will have money to spend in the summer and I am sure a new keeper will be high on his list of priorities when he does dip into the market.
There is a report in today’s Mirror, claiming that Arsenal will make an £8 million move for Manchester City keeper Joe Hart in the summer and to tell you the truth, I reckon Hart would be a cracking signing for the Gunners.
Hart, 23, is currently on loan at Birmingham, however with Shay Given likely to remain as number 1 at Eastlands next season, there is talk that the England international will look to leave City on a permanent basis.
I have said it in the past and I will say it again. Hart is, without doubt, one of the best keepers in the Premier League and I believe he would be superb addition to the Arsenal squad. He is still very young and at £8 million, I feel he represents value for money.
