WADOO!!SPORTNEWS: Arsenal eyeing Petr Cech or Hugo Lloris as Wojciech Szczesny replacement
Arsenal have reportedly instructed their scouts to find a replacement for Wojciech Szczesny, with Petr Cech and Hugo Lloris currently top of Arsene Wenger’s wish list, UK’s Metro reports via The Mailonline.
The Polish goalkeeper was heavily fined after being caught smoking in the showers following his shambolic performance in the Gunners’ 2-0 defeat at Southampton, and Wenger is said to have finally lost patience with the 24-year-old. The Daily Mail claims Szczesny’s attitude and professionalism has riled senior figures around the club, including a host of first-team stars, prompting Wenger to order scouting staff to find him a new no.1. Arsenal’s immediate targets are said to include Chelsea’s Cech and Spurs’ Lloris, although convincing either rival to sell would be a tricky matter. Szczesny must now wait to see if he’s recalled to the side for Saturday’s visit of Stoke, with summer signing David Ospina having been preferred in the FA Cup victory over Hull.
