Arsenal’s current predicament means they aren’t going to be shopping at the top-end of the transfer market, and it does mean that any transfer is going to come with an element of risk.

One of the biggest questions for Mikel Arteta will come down to what kind of risk he actually wants to take, and the goalkeeping situation is the perfect example.
