There are some shocked faces here in the Football Transfer Tavern as Metro claim Arsenal may land Iker Casillas on a free transfer.
According to the publication, so keen is Iker Casillas to make the switch to North London, that he is willing to ask Real Madrid to terminate his current deal.
Over a pint, one of our punters makes the point that Casillas has already seen his number one spot in terms of the league matches gone and with Levante’s Keylor Navas coming in as well, his future looks as bleak as his World Cup performance against the Netherlands.
We are not sure that the keeper would be suited for life in the Premier League with shot stopping a strong point for Casillas, but actually coming for crosses and having a physical presence not exactly something he would like a spotlight on.
In the top flight of English football, that is something a huge amount of focus is placed on.
Arsene Wenger has been heavily linked with Nice’s David Ospina but after Valencia entered the race for the Colombian keeper, there could be some life in the Casillas links yet.
Arsenal fans. Who would you rather sign? Do you think Casillas is the right man for you? Let us know your thoughts below.
