Wenger looks to bring Upton Park stalwart to the Emirates.
Arsene Wenger will reportedly turn his attentions to West Ham keeper Robert Green to resolve his goalkeeping crisis after apparently opting against a move for Fulham’s Australian goalie Michael Schwarzer. The Arsenal boss has decided that a move for England international Green would be a better long term option than the Cottagers man who is seven years his senior.
If the north London club convince the Hammers to sell it could set off a chain reaction of moves that could see Portsmouth keeper David James make a dramatic return to Upton Park who are of course set to announce former Pompey boss Avram Grant as their new boss.
After four seasons as a Hammer, the last three of which he has been an ever present, the 30 year old is apparently very much interested in speculation linking him with a move to the Emirates where he will finally get a chance to prove himself on a grander scale, with the chance to play Champions League football something he would surely jump at.
The asking price for the former Norwich City man could be the one sticking point with the east London club valuing him at around £9m and Arsenal seeking a deal of around £6m for the Chertsey born custodian.
