Arsenal Eye Move For Uruguayan International to Resolve Problem Area

Arsenal look to end their goalkeeping woes this summer by making a move for Galatasaray goalkeeper, Fernando Muslera, TalkSport understands.

Gunners boss, Arsene Wenger, has realised that the goalkeeping position has been a problem area for him this season having publicly criticised Wojciech Szezesny, and then dropping him for second choice, Lukasz Fabianski earlier this month.

A number of players have been mooted to be on the manager’s shopping list but according to reports the Galatasaray number one, Fernando Muslera, is top of the list.

Muslera made his name in Italy with Lazio where he made over 100 appearances before making the switch to Galatasaray in 2011.

Since then, Muslera has become one of the most reliable ‘keepers in Europe and has played a major role in the Turkish club’s recent rise to prominence.

The Argentine born Uruguayan international has reportedly said that is would be a ‘dream’ to play in the Premier League, but Galatasaray have made it clear that they will fight to keep a hold of him. Club president, Unal Aysal said; “Our goal is clear, Until we win the Champions League it’s important we don’t sell our best players.”

The 26-year-old is a fine shot stopper and great in 1-on-1 situations, he would provide a steady assuredness that Arsenal’s other goalkeepers don’t possess now that he has matured into such a high profile role.
