Arsenal plan to sign Christian Walton

Published 1 Comments

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger wants to bring Brighton goalkeeper Christian Walton to the club, according to The Mirror.

The England youth star, who is just 18-years-old, has gained many admirers in recent time, with a number of Premier League clubs reportedly interested in his signature.

And now it appears that Gunners boss Wenger wants to bring him to The Emirates as he plans to groom him into the club's No.1 keeper.

Arsenal are currently short in the goalkeeping ranks after Lukasz Fabianski departed the club for Swansea City at the end of last month. 28-year-old Emiliano Viviano is also set to depart north London and return to Italian outfit Palermo after a loan spell with the Gunners. 

It's unlikely that Walton will challenge for the No.1 spot at Arsenal anytime soon, however it appears that Wenger wants him to be at the club for the long term.

It remains to be seen as to whether Arsenal can secure the player's services from Brighton in the near future, but he certainly looks an exciting prospect.
