Arsenal’s depth in the squad apart from the strike department and goalkeeper department is appreciable but a top quality league winning side needs to have competition in every area of the game. Lets take an example of the former league winning Manchester United side. The likes of Evans, Jones, Vidic and Smalling fighting for the heart of the defense with Hernandez as a fourth choice striker was indeed scary. At one moment Lindegaard almost won the rank of the first choice keeper.
Similarly, Gunners need the same competition in their squad in the goalkeeping department. Szczesny is good but he needs to improve for regularly starting for Arsenal. The highly rated 21 year old ter Stegan is believed to have turned down the offer of a new deal at Borussia-Park and it is reported that the club are now ready to let him move for a cut price amount this month.
The reports will certainly spell good news for the north Londoners, who have been reported hot on the trail of the player for quite a while now. The Gunners are believed to searching for a strong player to provide their goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny with considerable competition for a place in the first team and are suggested to be viewing Ter Stegen as the ideal option for the same.
But however European giants FC Barcelona are looking closely to this situation as Victor Valdes is almost certainly out in the coming transfer window.
