Emirates boss should consider move for former Man City man.
Notts County have agreed to release goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel on a free transfer at the end of the season.
The 23-year-old Dane was reported to be on £15,000 a week after being signed in the short-lived Munto Finance revolution last summer.
The former Manchester City man, named in the League Two team of the season, had four years left on his deal.
Chairman Ray Trew said: “To hold out for a possible transfer fee was too big a risk for this football club.”
He continued: “If we were not able to sell him, the value of his contract over the next four years was such that it could have had severe financial implications on Notts County’s future.
“Kasper has agreed to forgo all his future wages, which is a huge concession by such a young man.”
Schmeichel made 40 League Two appearances for Notts as they clinched promotion and will leave on 11 May.
He said: “I have had a terrific season at Notts and thoroughly enjoyed every moment and I’ll be first in the queue for the end-of-season DVD. (BBC Sport)
We need a keeper so how about bringing in a talented youngster for nothing? We are talking about the son of arguably the best keeper of the Premier League era. A goalie who has proven himself capable of performing in the top tier. Kasper Schmeichel has managed four clean sheets in the eight starts he was given at Man City.
Manuel Almunia is just to damned inconsistent, Lukasz Fabianski even more so. Vito Mannone looks like the real deal but is still not ready to step up. It seems that given he could be snapped up for free there seems to be nothing to lose.
The towering Dane is a fabulous talent and I see no reason why Wenger shouldn’t consider such a move.
