With Lukasz Fabianski having made clear his desire to leave the club this summer, there is expected to be some movement in the transfer market for a new goalkeeper.
Although youngster Damian Martinez is highly rated, it’s unlikely Arsene Wenger would go into the new season without some more experienced back up, and according to Norwegian media we’re scouting Songdal stopper Kenneth Udjus.
TV2 claims that Arsenal have had him watched in his last four games, something the player is aware of but seems keen to play down.
“I have heard that Arsenal have seen me in action,” he said, “but I can not say any more about this. It goes without saying that playing for a big club like Arsenal would be enormous.
“But this by no means something I think a lot about. We’ll see what will happen in the future but my focus now is just to perform for Sogndal.”
Udjus, who will be 29 in July, has been ever present for Songdal this season and they currently lie 11th in the Norwegian league.
Whether he’s good enough Arseblog News can’t say, no doubt some of our Norwegian readers can give us some more info in the comments, but he seems to fit the profile should the manager decide to let Fabianski leave.
