Arsenal on alert as long-term keeper target made available

Published Add your comment

Arsenal have reportedly been alerted to the availability of French goalkeeper target Sebastien Frey.

The Fiorentina stopper has been linked with a Barclays Premier League switch for several seasons now, with Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson previously thought to be keen on a move for the 31-year-old.

However, United appear to have taken their interest elsewhere with Manuel Neuer, David De Gea and Hugo Lloris all thought to be higher on the agenda at Old Trafford.

The Daily Mail claims Arsenal are still interested in Frey though, and the paper claims that the Serie 'A' club are now willing to listen to offers despite the player himself stating he's willing to stay in Florence.


Arsene Wenger is thought to be in the market for a keeper, with Wojciech Szczesny, Lukasz Fabianski and Manuel Almunia failing to convince the Frenchman that they are the long-term answer for Arsenal.

With the Viola looking to fund a summer squad makeover with the sale of Frey and Adrian Mutu, Arsenal will have to pay to bring the two-cap international to the Emirates, but his consistency could be key to a potential title challenge in seasons to come.
