Manuel Almunia has not been included in the touring party that leaves for the Far East on Sunday. This has raised speculation that Arsenal are ready to sell him and that they will be in the market for a new goalkeeper.

The number one goalkeeping target for Arsenal has emerged as Sunderland’s Scottish international Craig Gordon. Arsenal have been keeping a close eye on the goalkeeper in a bid to bring him in as the new number one or atleast to compete against Szczesny.

Some fans do not believe Arsenal need a new goalkeeper and that Szczesny should be given the chance to fully prove himself as a top class goalkeeper.

But Gordon has all the experience we need right now. Signing him will be a big boost to the squad. Gordon has been plagued by injuries but he seems to have gotten over them now and if he is fully fit, he is one of the best keeps in the league.

Do you think Wenger should go after Gordon as the new number one?

    No!!! Szczesny is the number 1!! that money should be spent on an outfield player maybe Mata or Cahill!!

  2. WC says:

    Stekelenberg is pining to come to Arsenal and the best we can do is Craig Gordon? No wonder Arsene hasn’t won anything in 6 years.

    Scezney – Full International
    Fabianski – Full International
    Mannone – U21 International
    Martinez – Recently called up to full Argentina squad
    Shea – Promising young goalkeeper
    McDermott – U20 International

    Why do we need Craig “always injured” Gordon. Crikey for similar money we could get Scott Parker, far more what we need.

    I agree, there there are more important positions to `splash the cash`.

  11. Lumix says:

    better the deffence and scezney would be extraordinary.

  12. Cirheed bakare says:

    Arsene wenger is not serious……..

  13. Marto-fab says:

    Goalkeeping crisis is not what he should be focusing on right now, we got quality goalkeepers……aaaarghh! Wenger!

  14. Kots says:

    Gordon is better than given. All these nigerian boys who only watch arse, mancs, chelski would never know him. But he will hamper the progress of scz n fab.

  15. dan says:

    Gordo is better than anything we’ve got. Stekelenburg? wenger has yanked that chain one too many times in the past, they don’t take our calls anymore.

  16. TrueWisdom says:

    For everyone who says we must leave Scezcny as the first choice keeper, that’s highly illogical because we need to have a replacement for him if simething happens. The other keepers we have are “promising” but promises get broken. Example, Almunia. So signing Gordon would be good but I prefer Stekelenberg
