Gunners 'agree terms' with international keeper

Published Add your comment

Mark Schwarzer has secretly agreed to join Arsenal - says the Evening Standard.

The Gunners reportedly had a bid of £2 million rejected by Fulham for the gloveman prior to the World Cup, but they are said to be on the verge of making an improved offer.

Schwarzer - Australia's number one stopper - has been identified by Arsene Wenger as the man to replace Manuel Alumina while the Arsenal boss looks for a long-term replacement for his current first choice.

The 37-year-old is understood to be keen to have a crack at the Champions League before he retires and, although he favours a move to the Emirates, the Cottagers denied reports earlier this week that he had handed in a transfer request.

However, according to the Evening Standard, the former Middlesbrough keeper has already agreed personal terms with the north Londoners and will complete a move across the capital should his suitors offer £3 million to his current employers.

Wenger has been linked with numerous goalkeepers throughout the summer, including Russia's Igor Akinfeev and England youngster Joe Hart.
