Arsene Wenger continues to pursue potential goalkeepers to keep Spaniard Almunia on his toes, and this latest rumour seems to be one hell of a bargain.
Arsenal are lining up a £3.5m bid for Newcastle goalkeeper Shay Given. (News of the World)
NEWCASTLE UNITED’S Shay Given is the latest keeper to be linked to the Arsenal number one spot with Arsene Wenger believed to be preparing a bid of £3.5million. (East London and West Essex Guardian Series)
£3.5m seems a steal! Given is one of the best keepers in the Premier League, perhaps even the best, so maybe the bid is just an opener. Either way, the Irishman is a real quality goalie and has shown his worth during his decade plus at St James’ Park. Could Shay really be about to leave the Magpies and do Arsenal fans think its worth upping that bid, just to make sure they have a shot at picking up such a talent?
