Wenger considering bid for Stuttgart ace

Arsene Wenger will get the axeArsenal boss Arsene Wenger is considering a move for Stuttgart keeper Sven Ulreich in the summer, according to the Metro.

Wenger went with Wojciech Szszesny as his number one keeper this season but his drop in form has seen him lose his place in the side. Back-up keeper Lukasz Fabianski has stepped in since but Wenger is thought to be looking for a differen first-choice keeper for next season.

Barcelona’s Victor Valdes has been linked with a move to England but Wenger is keeping tabs on Ulreich in case a deal can be reached between the two sides.

Ulreich came through the ranks at Stuttgart and has been the first-choice keeper since the start of the 2010-11 season. The 24-year-old is yet to appear for the full German national side but has already represented the Under-21’s and has been tipped for big things in the German press.

Ulreich is expected to command a significant transfer fee if he departs at the end of this season with his contract running until June 2017.
