A few seasons ago, when I first saw Wojciech Szczesny make his first-team debut against Manchester United, I for one thought for certain that our goalkeeping worries were over.
But a few bad performances, his inability to clear balls properly, indecision and rushes of blood to the head in a handful of games have cost us dearly at times.
Take nothing away from the 22-year-old’s ability. But at some point we have to realize that the only way he could ever reach his true potential is if we sat him on the bench and let a seasoned pro show him the ropes, up until the point when Szczesny begins to put up a real fight for the number one jersey.
So, who could we bring in this summer to challenge and possibly take Szcezsny place in the side you ask?
Well according to weekend reports, Arsene Wenger is looking to bring Michel Vorm from Swansea.
It is believed Arsenal are set to trigger an alleged ‘get-out clause’ in the Dutchman’s current deal which would make him reasonably affordable and a great buy for our club.
The amount in question is not yet known to the general public, but it will no doubt come out as we approach the end of the season.
In my opinion, Vorm would be an excellent addition to our squad. He has the ability to perform in big games, has great reflexes, Premier League experience and commands his are very well.
I know a lot of you may think that this potential move for Vorm could hinder Szczesny’s development progress, but I believe it would do the exact opposite.
Should Szczesny see his career elsewhere, with Vorm potentially coming in as our new number one, then the Poland international doesn’t deserve to be a Gunner, especially if he is unwilling to prove he is worthy of a starting berth by fighting for it.
We definitely need competition in this department and Vorm would certainly provide this.
