At a time when most Premier League managers are busy signing players, Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has come under heavy criticism by fans for ‘whiling away’ his time at Brazil. And if the latest reports in the press are to be believed, the problems may become even more serious for the Frenchman in the near future.
Reports in The Daily Star have revealed that Real Madrid are considering making a swoop for Stoke City shot-stopper Asmir Begovic, who has previously also been linked with the likes of Manchester United and more strongly to Arsenal.
The Bosnian has endured a tough summer with his national team, exiting the World Cup in the group stage itself. And that, in turn, has provided his suitors with a chance to speed up talks of a probable move. Los Blancos manager Carlo Ancelotti is understood to be eager to sign the player, thus pouring cold water on Arsenal’s hopes.
The north Londoners recently bid adieu to their goalkeepers Lukasz Fabianski and Emiliano Viviano and are currently without a backup for Wociech Szczesny. Landing Begovic would have been the perfect move by the manager, with the Bosnian capable of providing the Pole with immense competition for a place in the first team.
