‘I Have Three World Class Goalkeepers’ – Arsene Wenger Rules Out Arsenal Taking £15m Summer Dabble On Joe Hart

Amid a flurry of tabloid chatter, Arsene Wenger has ruled out making a move for Joe Hart come the end of the season.

Speculation was rife on Thursday morning that Arsenal were preparing a £15million offer for Hart, who is currently plugging away at Torino on a season-long getaway from Man City.

Codsdash and balderwallop, honked Wenger when asked about Hart at his regularly scheduled press conference:

No. I have three world class goalkeepers and I’m happy with the three I have.

Maybe [Petr Cech] was at fault on the third goal [against Chelsea] but overall I feel he has had a good season.

Cech (yep), Ospina (75 caps for Colombia so yep) and… Emiliano Martinez? Wojciech Szczesny?

So that’s four “world class” strikers and three “world class” keepers at current count – strange then that Arsenal should find themselves 12 points off the pace going into February.

While it’s a hopelessly subjective term at the best of times, never has the definition of ‘world class’ been stretched so thinly.

    Well, to me, Joe Hart is anything but world class. Cech is way better and Ospina might me better too. Hart makes too many mistakes, come on. If he was good he would not be at Torino. No big or even medium size club wanted to sign him.

    @Bruno – You will probably find that he was prohibited from joining another mid-to-top table Premiership club, as this is typical for loan signings.
