Arsenal have emerged as the new favorites to sign Celtic Goalkeeper Artur Boruc after AC Milan all but pulled out.

AC Milan have been keeping an eye on the Polish goalie and considering how they performed recently against Chelsea it would appear that a goalie is definitely required at the San Siro but they have limited funds at their disposal and appear resigned to not getting their man.

Arsenal on the other hand have money to splash and want a new goalie to compete with Almunia their current number one and it is no secret that Wenger has been an admirer of the Celtic stopper.

Reports have been circulating for a few days now that Arsenal are ready to make an offer and a source close to the player has been reported as saying that if Arsenal make a bid that the player would jump bat the chance.
Celtic are open to offers and are prepared to let the player go if the price is right. (footylatest.com)

Arsene Wenger has been chasing Boruc for some time, at least that’s the case if you believe the tabloids, and you can see why the Frenchman is so interested. The Polish keeper is a very assured and hugely capable keeper who could be just what Arsenal need to put alongside Almunia in order to have two keepers fighting for the first team spot. Celtic are reportedly only going to listen to offers in the £8m bracket and the question would then be whether the Gunners would rather go all out on a keeper or use the cash to invest in a midfielder. Do Arsenal fans want to see Boruc at the club? Or is it enough to have Fabianski in the wings in case Almunia suffers any injury of form concerns?
