Fulham keeper Mark Schwarzer has pleaded with his club to let him get his preferred move across London after it was rumoured the Gunners bid for the stopper had been rejected.
The Austrailian goalkeeper has been one of Wenger's targets this summer as he looks to provide goalkeeping experience whist at the same time not interrupting the progression of what Wenger called 'the future Arsenal number one' in the form of Wojciech Szczesny, and Schwarzer fits the bill pretty well.
Following the bid from Arsenal, Schwarzer has expressed his desire for a move to Ashburton Grove.
'I need it to happen,' Schwarzer said in an Austrailian paper
'I've had a couple of chats with Mark Hughes. It's delicately poised. Who wouldn't be keen to go to Arsenal? At this stage in my career it's an amazing opportunity to play at that level and one I really want to take.'
'It's taken a long time and the season's very close. On one hand you understand them not wanting to disrupt too many things but I want things resolved as quickly as possible.'
'Only time will tell whether that happens or not.'
At 37 years of age, this is probably Schwarzer's last chance at a shot at Champions League football and a genuine crack at some silverware. Debate still rages in blogosphere as to whether he is even an improvement on what we already have.
Personally I'd say he'd be a marked improvement on the current shaky Fabianski, and would have in his locker everything Almunia has on show with the added exception that he'd be something new who could bring some confidence from his defenders that is seemingly lacking from Arsenal's current array of keepers.
