As the summer transfer window deadline day approaches, many football fans remain anxious at the prospect of potential transfers. Undoubtedly, non more than the Gooners, with anxiety turning into frustration after being linked with one or two big stars for almost every position on the field this summer with none coming to fruition.
Another high-profile and much needed player we’ve been linked with is Spain’s number one shot-stopper Iker Casillas.
The Spaniard fell out-of-favour under Jose Mourinho at Real Madrid and after being left out of the La Liga club’s opener against Real Betis questions were once again raised as to whether or not Casillas will be at the Bernabeu for much longer, according to Carlo Ancelotti.
So if Real decide to sell the 32-year-old, what sort of impact would he have on our current squad and would he be the perfect addition this summer?
His reputation precedes him. The man is a world class goalie and an accomplished leader. He’s proved himself on the biggest stages time and time again, so yes! He would be the perfect addition to the squad in my opinion.
If we ever needed a keeper to make the likes of Wojciech Szczensy and Lukasz Fabianski put up an even greater fight for the number one jersey, Casillas would without a doubt bring that kind of competition.
He may have a little bit of a rough patch trying to settle into a new nation, league, team and style of play, but as a seasoned professional I doubt it would take long to find his feet.
If at all he does get transfer listed he should be a major priority for Arsene Wenger to look at.
