With the focus very much on bringing a new centre-forward to the Emirates, some of the emphasis on Arsenal signing a new goalkeeper may have been lost.
For the first time since the move to the Emirates, Arsenal enjoyed a strong goalkeeping department with plenty of quality. Last summer’s loan signing Emiliano Viviano, a full international with Italy, failed to get a game, such was the form of Wojciech Szczesny and Lukasz Fabianski.
Fabianski is obviously a big loss, having finally turned a corner in his career and developed into the kind of goalkeeper Wenger had been promising for years.
It simply means that the club must replace the Polish international with equal or higher quality in order to build on the good work of last season.
With a goalkeeper set to be one of many arrivals at the club this summer, here are five options Arsenal should target.
