Arsene Wenger is prepared to keep Cardiff City’s David Marshall in the Premier League by making a £15 million offer to lure him to the Emirates, Telegraph reports.
The Arsenal manager could hijack this potential move from their North London rivals Tottenham Hotspur, who are also trying to sign the in-demand keeper.
Cardiff has put a 15 million price tag on the head of their star player, but that doesn’t seem to bother Wenger, who could make the offer for Marshall to become the replacement for outgoing Lukasz Fabianski.
The current Gunners back-up keeper is believed to have rejected a new contract offer and looks to be on his way out with Swansea trying to sign him on a free transfer.
With the imminent exit of Fabianski, the French boss wants to bring in someone who could challenge Wojciech Szczesny for a place as the squad’s number one.
The London club are also rumoured to be monitoring the likes of Reading keeper Alex McCarthy as another potential replacement, but it seems that the Bluebirds shot-stopper still tops their shopping list.
