Well, Wenger has stepped into near insanity today as now Arsenal are rumoured to be chasing a Wigan GOALKEEPER (yeah, you heard that right, a goalkeeper from Wigan)
It is in fact Ali Al Habsi, the sometimes erratic Wigan Athletic goalkeeper, who is subject to some interest on Arsenal’s part. It seems that Arsenal are certainly taking it to new heights in their search for gems who can become world beaters in the future.
The goalkeeper from Oman is apparently courted by Arsenal according to the newspaper, Wigan Today, and has been pivotal in helping to trying to keep Wigan inside the Premier League. Al Habsi has reliably good reflexes and his goalkeeping style resembles much of the Marseille keeper, Mandanda.
What I don’t understand here is simply why Arsenal are looking at goalkeepers from clubs at the bottom end of the Premier League table when they have capable keepers in Polish goalkeeper Fabianski and his compatriot and teammate, the Polish youngster Wojcich Sczesny.
