Arsenal Will Turn To Relegated Premier League Star If Deal For Barcelona Ace Falls Through

Posted by

Arsenal are understood to be keen of landing either David Marshall or Victor Valdes this summer.

Premier League giants Arsenal are gearing up to table an £8m offer for Cardiff City shotstopper David Marshall, after having had a £6m bid for him rejected last week.

Additionally, reports in The Daily Express have revealed that the Gunners may consider making a move for FC Barcelona ‘keeper Victor Valdes, if they fail to sign the Scot.

The North Londoners’ second-choice goalkeeper, Lukasz Fabianzki, said goodbye to the club recently on the expiration of his contract at the Emirates Stadium, moving to Welsh side Swansea City.

As a result manager Arsene Wenger is understandably eager to land reinforcements at the club before time runs out.

Meanwhile, Marshall and Valdes both would have their doubts on a move to Arsenal, especially after seeing Emiliano Viviano failing to play even one match for the club last season and Fabianski also leaving, discontented during the latter stages of his stay.

However, a move to North London would provide the Scot with a chance to return to the Premier League and as for the Spaniard, he also has Liverpool keeping tabs on him.
