Arsenal boss Wenger risks Szczesny wobbler over keeper pursuit

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger risks losing Wojciech Szczesny if he pursues a senior goalkeeper signing next month. The Sunday Mirror says Liverpool's Pepe Reina, Wigan's Ali Al-Habsi and Stoke's Asmir Begovic are among the keepers Arsenal have discussed.

But all three of those players would expect regular first-team football, and that could be a ­problem for Szczesny.

They would also want to be paid more than the £40,000-a-week ­Szczesny earns.

Szczesny has no ­fear of healthy competition, but the 22-year-old Pole has no ­interest in sharing the goalkeeping duties, like David de Gea and Anders ­Lindegaard have done at ­Manchester United.
