Arsenal Football Club are being linked with a move for Artur Boruc.

The Poland international has been a big in hit in Scotland since his move to Celtic in the summer of 2005, and he has since been linked with a move to England.

According to reports in the Scottish Sun, the Bhoys are keen to tie the 30-year old to a new contract, amidst suggestions Arsene Wenger could make an offer for him in the summer.

It is widely accepted that the Gunners would benefit from a new shot-stopper to challenge Manuel Almunia, with Lukasz Fabianski failing to impress at the Emirates Stadium.

However, the jury is open as to whether Boruc would be good enough to succeed in the English Premier League, and Wenger may be instead decide to look elsewhere. (Fans FC)

I think its fair to say that Manuel Almunia is not the keeper who impressed for large period of last term and that Arsene Wenger may well be looking to strengthen the keeping area at the Emirates. Celtic goalie Artur Boruc is one of the best around and has made noises about a potential move away from Parkhead for a while now and after seeing the SPL title chase well and truly blown out of the water by rivals Rangers and a less than perfect Europa League campaign, the Polish international may well feel that now is the time to make a Glasgow exit.

The Gunners boss will be encouraged by the early signs of potential shown by Vito Mannone but less than pleased with the abject displays by Lukasz Fabianski and with Spaniard Almunia making more than his fair share of mistakes of late a move in the summer for a top notch keeper may well be on the cards and there are few better between the sticks right now than Artur Boruc.

Celtic will not be keen on selling Boruc but may feel that they have no choice to do so if he made it clear he wanted to leave. He has given the club five years of great service and may not stand in his way if he does want to make the step up to the Premier League this summer.
