Arsenal line up brilliant £6 million bargain?
There have been some rumours emerge which suggest that Arsenal are set to reignite their interest in £6 million rated Birmingham stopper Jack Butland, as Arsene Wenger looks to add another good stopper to his squad in this month’s transfer window.
Birmingham are bracing themselves for bids from the Gunners, Fulham and Southampton after all three clubs checked out Butland’s situation.
Ideally Arsene Wenger wants an experienced stopper but £6m-rated England keeper Butland, 19, has been on Wenger’s radar for some time.
Wenger needs some good competition for current number one Wojciech Szczesny and see’s the highly-rated Butland as the idea man to challenge or even replace the big pole. And considering he would only cost £6 million, it would be a bargain in the long-run as the lad is tipped for the top by everybody, and will surely be an England regular in the future.
