Arsenal could beat Sunderland to French International Mickael Landreau after reports claiming that the goalkeeper’s current club Paris St Germain are keen to lure Gunners reserve keeper Lukasz Fabianski away from the Emirates Stadium.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is understood to be willing to let Polish International Fabianski leave the North London club, with the 23-year-old keeper unhappy at his lack of opportunities at the Gunners since his transfer from Legia Warsaw in 2007.
Wenger however, will not let Fabianski leave Arsenal without finding a suitable replacement and was linked with a shock move for 29-year-old Landreau by the French press recently. Which throws up the possibility of some form of swap deal between the two clubs.
PSG value Landreau in the region of £2million and he is considered one of the best keepers in Ligue 1, with a big reputation as a penalty specialist, having saved over 30 in his career to date with Nantes and PSG.
Any move by Arsenal is sure to anger Black Cats boss Roy Keane, who has targeted Landreau as the goalkeeper to replace Scottish International Craig Gordon at the Stadium of Light, but with PSG’s interest in Fabianski and Wenger’s admiration of Landreau then it could be London and not the North East where Landreau ply’s his trade in the Premier League come January.
