The Daily Mail says Wenger has been given the green light to go on a January splurge to revive Arsenal’s precarious Champions League qualification hopes.
The Frenchman has identified three key areas: a keeper, a wide attacking player and a central striker.
Vorm remains a strong contender in the club’s search for a keeper. Arsenal have watched the Dutchman extensively while they will also keep a close eye on Pepe Reina’s situation at Liverpool. Wenger is a huge fan of the Spain squad man and attempted to sign him in 2010.
Wenger wants his new keeper to compete with — and potentially replace — Wojciech Szczesny, not to be second choice. Arsenal’s goalkeeping problems were clearly illustrated on Saturday, with stand-in Vito Mannone partly at fault for Fulham’s first two goals in the 3-3 draw.
