Wenger Consider To Take Goalkeeper On Loan

Arsenal are pondering a move for Shay Given as Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini is set to name Joe Hart his number one goalkeeper.

Hart is set to earn the starting spot in net for both City and England as Fabio Capello is ready to make the 23-year-old his number one when the Three Lions take on Hungary in a friendly on Wednesday.

Gunners manager Arsene Wenger is desperate to solve his goalkeeping crisis and with Given looking at the possibility of sitting the bench, Arsenal are looking to make a move for the Republic of Ireland international, according to The Mirror.

Given would jump at the chance of moving to the Gunners, and would most likely join Arsenal on a loan deal.

Wenger’s interest in Fulham goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer has waned as the Gunners would have to pay a transfer fee and sign him to an expensive two-year deal.

The Frenchman looked into making a deal for Hart, who had a fantastic season on loan at Birmingham, but City see the Englishman as their goalkeeper of the future and are unwilling to give him up.

Given also enjoyed a fine term for the Eastlands club, but is still recovering from a shoulder injury that prematurely ended his season last year, and with Hart playing well in pre-season it looks as if Mancini could give the youngster the starting job at City.


  1. Well, get him in. Someone who can hold us for 1season to push us up to the peak...
    And one year lesson for both youngster Mannone and Sczcesny too. =)

  2. Yes, Just take Given for our own good. We can sell Fabianski anywhere. He has no bargain at all

    sell Fabianski? Who the flyintg flip would buy him? No, we'd have to give him away in a raffle for flappy armed clowns or something like that, maybe chuck in Almunia to the deal as well.

    Ah life would be so good if you could snipe keepers you didn't like.

  4. Given will not solve our goalie problem. Mr. Wenger, please bring Akinfeev in!

  5. given is probably in the top 5 keepers in the world and has been consistantly outstanding for newcastle, man city and ireland. if arsenal can get him he would save the club points all on his own.

  6. wenger will live to regret not having signed a top goalie this season . he will have wasted the likes of fabregas n others who want silverware .

  7. the best keeper for arsenal is,
    holland goalkeeper maarten stekelenburg . please arsen get him iam sure he would save point all on his own
