Wenger wants to bring French number one to the Emirates.
Arsene Wenger is preparing to make a big money move for Lyon keeper Hugo Lloris as he looks to sign an effective replacement for serial blunderers Manuel Almunia. The Arsenal boss is known to be a big admirer of the French international and believes he can convince the 23 year old to leave the Ligue 1 club this summer.
The former Nice man has been voted best keeper in France two seasons running and is likely to be Raymond Domenech’s number one starter in South Africa and may well feel its time to leave France in order to further his career. Lloris may feel unfortunate to have arrived at Lyon after the club secured seven straight titles only to see them fail to seal the championship in the two seasons he has been between the sticks.
Spaniard Almunia and Polish international Lukasz Fabianski have failed to inspire confidence and even though the club has two great up and coming keepers coming through the ranks, Vito Mannone and Wojciech Szcz?sny, Wenger seems set on bringing in a new custodian and has earmarked £10m rated Lloris as the ideal man for the job.
