Arsenal target David Marshall to challenge Wojciech Szczesny

Arsenal are lining up David Marshall as competition for current number one Wojciech Szczesny.

The Scotland international has won widespread acclaim this season for a string of fine performances and Arsene Wenger is hoping to add the 29-year-old to his squad this summer.

With current back-up ‘keepers Lukasz Fabianski and Emiliano Viviano both set to depart the Emirates at the end of the campaign, Arsenal are in need of a stopper to compete with Szczesney.

According to the Daily Mirror, an offer of £8million would be enough to secure the talented ‘keeper’s services, and it is hope that genuine competition for the number one jersey will help in improving Szczesny further.

With Cardiff City already relegated, a move to the Emirates – with the added bonus of Champions League football – would surely be too tempting for the Scot to turn down.

At 29, the transfer may offer Marshall a last chance to play for one of Europe’s elite.

And should the former Norwich and Celtic man continue to perform at the level he has this season, there’s no reason why he couldn’t cement a starting place in Wenger’s talented squad.

Along with a goalkeeper, Arsenal are also rumoured to be in the hunt for a striker, a right-back and a midfielder.

Wenger has already gone on record to say that the club won’t be splashing out on any exceptionally expensive stars, and Marshall fits the bill with a humble price tag and Premier League experience.
