Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger appears to have ruled out a summer move for Petr Cech or Iker Casillas and has insisted that he has full faith in his current crop of goalkeeper at the Emirates Stadium.

The two world-class stoppers have both been tipped to depart Chelsea and Real Madrid respectively in the next transfer window and have been heavily linked with a potential move to the Gunners, but Wenger says he has no plans to strengthen in that department:
“I believe in the goalkeepers I have.I believe that Szczesny is a very good goalkeeper and Ospina has come in and done a fantastic job.” he told the club’s official website.
“You look at the numbers in the Premier League and you look at who is top of all the goalkeepers and you will see it’s Ospina.”
The denial comes a week after club legend Thierry Henry called on his former boss to improve the spine of the team and there has been suggestions from many in the media that the signing of Cech would instantly turn them into title challengers next season.
It must be added that Wenger does have previous in the past for dismissing interest in certain players so this could all be apart of the master plan to bring one of the best goalkeepers in the world to the club.
