David Seaman: Arsenal need Given or Schwarzer

Soccernet staff

Arsenal legend David Seaman has claimed that the club need to buy a goalkeeper this summer and hopes that it will be either Fulham's Mark Schwarzer of Manchester City's Shay Given.

Arsenal have been linked with a number of 'keepers during the transfer window, with Arsene Wenger remaining bullish that they have enough quality between the sticks for the new season.

However, reports have claimed that the Gunners had at least one offer for Schwarzer rejected by Fulham, while Given has now become available as Joe Hart has been handed the No.1 jersey at City.

Seaman now believes that Wenger has to bring one of the two experienced 'keepers into the club if they are to bring a trophy back to Emirates Stadium.

"Lukasz Fabianski has a great future, but I think Arsenal need to look at bringing in a 'keeper who's going to calm the defence down and be consistent,'' he told talkSport.co.uk.

"Neither keeper [Almunia or Fabianski] ended last season very well so the speculation to going to be there. And if the likes of Schwarzer and Given are available, then I think Arsene Wenger has to be looking at them."
