Buffon to replace Almunia?

Posted on May 12, 2010 in Transfer News

Reports suggest 32 year old Italian goalkeeper international Gianluigi Buffon could well be on his way to the Emirates Stadium. The Juventus keeper could replace Almunia, who has had a not so convincing season. Arsene Wenger who has admittedly said Manuel Almunia was never his number one long term keeper will be looking to replace him as soon as possible.

The 32-year-old has been linked with a move to the Premier League for some time and if these reports are to believed, his next destination will be the Emirates Stadium.

Buffon, who has won 100 caps for Italy, is expected to seal the switch to the Gunners within the next few weeks to end his nine-year stint in Turin.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has been searching far and wide for a new goalkeeper after the inconsistent and error-prone displays of Manuel Almunia and backup Lukasz Fabianski this season.
