It’s official now, if Arsenal’s manager Arsene Wenger wants to bring in a new extraordinarily good goalkeeper he can do that easily. All he has to do is submit a decent transfer fee for a goalkeeper he’s been watching for over three seasons, now that Lyon have announced that Hugo Lloris is up for grabs.
The French international goalkeeper has been the only real star in the French team during this summer’s EURO 2012, and he’s now ready to leave the French Ligue 1, leaving his club Lyon for a better and more competitive side.
Lyon’s president Jean-Michel Aulas has stated that Lloris can be bought now for a decent transfer fee, telling TF1:
“Lloris can go, but only for a decent price in relation to the market.”
Arsene Wenger is due to lose his second string goalkeeper Lukas Fabianski after the goalkeeper threatened he would leave the club at the end of the season if he wouldn’t get more playing time against his Pole conational Szczesny. With Lukas on his way out, it’s natural to say that Wenger will be on the market for a fresh talented goalkeeper, and Lloris might be an amazing option given the fact that he would skyrocket the competitiveness at Arsenal in the goalkeeper department.
