Oman international ‘interesting’ Arsenal boss

Published Add your comment

Arsenal are reportedly considering a move for Wigan loanee Ali Al Habsi.

The Oman international has impressed at the DW Stadium, on loan from Bolton Wanderers, and The Wigan Observer newspaper claims Arsene Wenger has taken a keen interest in the player.

Al Habsi has taken his opportunity under Roberto Martinez with both hands, and the Latics were also thought to be keen on signing the player permanently in the summer.

However, the lure of the Gunners could be too strong for the 29-year-old, who has previously played for Al-Nasr and Lyn Oslo in Norway.

A move to Arsenal would represent a huge turn around in fortunes for the stopper, who would become a legitimate challenger for the No.1 jersey at the Emirates.


The French boss is in the market for a goalkeeper, and is thought to be considering his Arsenal options with all current choices failing to make the position their own in north London.

As an added bonus, the paper highlights the fact that Al Habsi gains British citizenship later this year and would therefore fit Arsenal’s quote of home-based players.
