Arsenal 'send scout' to monitor £7.5m Fabianski replacement - move 'likely'

Arsenal have reportedly been monitoring Scotland goalkeeper Allan McGregor.

According to The Guardian, the north London club dispatched a scout to watch the Rangers man on Saturday as the Glasgow club beat Hearts 1-0 at Ibrox.

McGregor is the latest in a long line of stoppers to have been linked with Arsenal, who have failed to find a reliable no.1 since the departure of Jens Lehmann in 2008.

Manuel Almunia unsuccessfully tried to fill the void left my the German but now appears to be on his way out of Arsenal after falling down the pecking order.

Lukasz Fabianski started his career between the sticks for Arsenal in rather tentative fashion, but has since put in a number of commanding displays - enough to be promoted to a starting berth.


His encouraging performances even led Arsene Wenger to suggest he had a long career at Arsenal ahead of him.

"I am confident he will come out as a great keeper, I have always said that," said the Arsenal boss.

However, Wenger is thought to be considering adding a more experienced goalkeeper to his ranks in the summer and could do worse than bringing the £7.5 million-rated McGregor to Arsenal.

Rangers, however, find themselves in the financial mire and are expected to settle for a reduced fee, and The Guardian reports that a summer exit is 'likely'.
