Arsenal might revive their interest in Lyon and France’s national team goalkeeper Hugo Lloris now that the 25-year-old has admitted his interest in making a switch from the French Ligue 1.
The Gunners are in big need of a goalkeeper because of Fabianski’s leave, and Wenger is highly likely to bring a top notch goalkeeper who can either take Szczesny’s place or make him fight for his first team spot as hard as he can.
Lyon’s chairman Jean-Michel Aulas has admitted speaking to Lloris and deciding to let him go if an offer from a big European club came along, and as things stand at the moment this seems like a match made in heaven.
“I met him before he left for the French team. He told me if there is a proposition from a great European club, he could be tempted to go,” Aulas explained.
“However, I don’t think there is such an offer so far. The big European sides all have quality keepers.”
Arsene Wenger was interested in Lloris a few years back before Szczesny made the breakthrough into the first XI at Arsenal, and given the manager’s affinity to top French players, the switch is highly likely to occur.
Should Wenger go for him?
