Arsene Wenger has finally noticed there are serious flaws guarding the nets at Arsenal and will aim to rectify that by launching a bid for Joe Hart.
The Guardian claims that Wenger has lost faith in Manuel Almunia and Lukasz Fabianski and hopes to bring Hart to the Emirates to replace them.
Hart has been in fine form for Birmingham this season and is expected to be part of the England squad at the World Cup.
However, his parent club, Manchester City, have lost Shay Given to a serious shoulder injury and may resist any bids for Hart.
France 'keeper Hugo Lloris and Gianluigi Buffon have also been mooted as targets, especially after the latter expressed an interest in moving to England yesterday.

Sticking with Arsenal, and centre-backs are the position required for next season's title push.
The Times is suggesting firstly that Sol Campbell will be offered another year at the North London club after impressing since rejoining the club in January.
However, Mikael Silvestre and Philippe Senderos are expected to be released once their contracts expire, whilst William Gallas is keen on a free transfer to Paris St Germain.
Fulham's Brede Hangeland, Jack Rodwell of Everton, Gary Cahill at Bolton and Nevan Subotic of Borussia Dortmund have all been mooted as potential recruits to add a bit of height at the back.

Elsewhere, Liverpool are going to offer the team of Kenny Dalglish and Ian Rush the management job if, as expected, Rafa Benitez jumps ship to Juventus.
