Arsenal target former Spurs star

Published Add your comment

Arsenal are being linked with a move for former Tottenham Hotspur keeper Paul Robinson.

The Blackburn Rovers stopper has had a solid season at Ewood Park, and Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is reportedly monitoring the Englishman with a view to a potential summer move.

The Gunners have had several problems in the keeper position this season, with Manuel Almunia and Lukasz Fabianski failing to impress at the Emirates.

Wenger has been linked with a string of keepers ahead of the transfer window, with Fiorentina keeper Sebastien Frey and Juventus No.1 Gianluigi Buffon two players reportedly on the radar in north London.

Robinson is the newest goalkeeper on the list, and The People reports that Wenger will step up his interest when the window opens in June.

Blackburn boss Sam Allardyce has been raving about the form of the Ewood Park star, and was left stunned by his omission from Fabio Capello's World Cup 30.

The 30-year-old from Yorkshire lost his place as England No.1 in 2007, but has returned to the level that earned him 41 caps for the Three Lions.

Robinson, a keeper with experience in the Champions League as well, would be considered an outside bet for a move by many. He does seemingly represent the cheapest option for the Frenchman, though.
