Arsenal stopper target opens transfer door

Arsenal goalkeeper target Samir Handanovic has opened the door to a possible move away from Udinese.

The 27-year-old Slovenian international was heavily linked with a switch to the Emirates in 2010, and Serie 'A' giants AC Milan are also thought to be keen on a move for the player.

His fine form at the start of this season has once again led to speculation over a big move, either in Italy or Europe, and the keeper admits he'd be willing to consider 'a big club'.

"I'm happy at Udine, but of course, at my age, I am thinking about a big club," Handanovic told Gazzetta dello Sport.

"I like to take steps forward in my career and if I move on to a different team then it will be to improve myself. If that is not really an option then I will stay at Udinese."

Arsene Wenger was heavily linked with a handful of goalkeepers back in the summer of 2010 and January this year, with the Arsenal boss looking to solve a 'crisis' at the time.


Wojciech Szczesny has come to the fore for the Gunners since then though, with the Polish stopper firmly establishing himself as the number one choice for the Arsenal manager.

However, a lack of depth in the position remains a problem for Arsenal, and a move for the experienced Handanovic could be a benefit long-term for both the club and 21-year-old Szczesny.
