Arsenal give up on Jordan Pickford but target another Premier League goalkeeper
Arsenal are lining up a summer move for Jack Butland, according to the Daily Star.
With David Ospina set to leave the Emirates, Arsenal are in the market for another goalkeeper.
Petr Cech is performing as well as he has all season but he is not getting any younger.
If Wenger does not feel that Wojciech Szczesny has a future at Arsenal then this makes perfect sense.
Butland has performed very well for Stoke but suffered a major injury that kept him out for a long time.
He is perhaps the best young goalkeeper in the Premier League and could well be England’s number one.
Arsenal face competition from Manchester United and City as well as Chelsea.
Szczesny has said in recent days that he wants to return to Arsenal after performing very well while away on loan at Roma.
It doesn’t seem likely that Arsenal would go with both keepers as well as Cech.
If Butland comes in then the writing is on the wall for Szczesny, and possibly Cech.
