Arsenal prepare summer move for German star

Published Add your comment

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is being linked with a summer move for German keeper Rene Adler.

The 25-year-old Bayer Leverkusen keeper is battling to be his country's No.1 at this summer's World Cup, and has impressed more than the Arsenal boss this season in the Bundesliga.

The Gunners have been linked with a string of goalkeepers in recent weeks, with Gianluigi Buffon and Joe Hart just two names mentioned in the British media.

However, reports in German national paper Bild suggest that Wenger will make his move for Adler if Leverkusen fail to qualify for the Champions League this season.

A German U21 star who has been at the BayArena since joining as a teenager in 2000, Adler has earned rave reviews in his homeland since making his debut back in 2007. Then first choice keeper Hans-Jorg Butt was sold to Benfica, and Adler has been in control between the posts ever since.

A string of impressive performances for his country in the World Cup qualifiers have put Adler in pole position for a starting place at the World Cup, and his value is sure to increase if he produces some fine displays in South Africa.

Wenger is keen to add another keeper at the Emirates after stuttering seasons from Manuel Almunia and Lukasz Fabianski, and Adler could solve the Frenchman's problems as an experienced keeper with plenty of years ahead of him.
