Arsenal weigh up summer swoop for Dutch International
Wojciech Szczesny has been Arsenal’s number one goalkeeper for most of the season, but after being dropped in recent weeks, it seems Wenger has lost faith in the Polish shot stopper.
With Lukasz Fabianski the next rated goalkeeper at the club, Wenger will be looking to bring in a new number 1 at the club instead of promoting from within.
Vorm conceded two goals on the weekend to Arsenal, but has still impressed the French manager with his performances since he joined the Welsh club in 2011. Despite having three years left on his contract, Wenger is confident he can tempt the Dutch international into moving to the Emirates stadium.
Arsenal have also been linked with Liverpool ‘keeper Pepe Reina over recent months, however the Spaniard has been linked with a return to Barcelona instead, meaning Wenger may have to draw his attention elsewhere.
Vorm, who was an unused substitute in Swansea’s 5-0 win over Bradford to win the Capital One Cup, has also been linked with Manchester United over recent months.
The 29-year-old is expected to start in Swansea’s home game against Tottenham on Saturday, as Swansea look to try catch up with 8th place West Brom.
