The rumours are coming thick and fast in the Football Transfer Tavern today and the Daily Telegraph has interested both Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur fans.
The publication seems to think that Cardiff City stopper David Marshall – who was many people’s pick for goalkeeper of the year – will be involved in a tug of war between the clubs, both of whom are keen to land him.
Arsene Wenger is, for once, thought to be set to move first for the Scottish international and will table an offer for the player thought to be worth around £15 million.
Our punters note that not only will Wenger need to make sure that he does not get ripped off on the back of an excellent season for Marshall but he also needs to be aware that Spurs could be looking for a replacement for Hugo Lloris.
If the French number one does decide to stay at White Hart Lane, Wenger will be in pole position to land his number one target to replace Lukasz Fabianski.
Marshall has had an excellent season despite the Bluebirds’ relegation but we are not totally convinced he will be content to join the Gunners and play second fiddle to Wojciech Szczesny.
Do you think that Wenger will pay as much as £15 million for a back-up keeper? Let us know your thoughts below.
