There is a report today that Arsenal are inquiring about the availability of Newcastle goalkeeper Tim Krul.
Tim Krul-Surely Newcastle’s keeper of the future
There have been reports in the past that Tim Krul was unhappy with his place at Newcastle. However that was before Newcastle sold the great Shay Given. Thanks Mike. Now with Tim Krul firmly planted as the number 2 to Steve Harper, he is regarded as the future goalkeeper of Newcastle.
So reports that Arsenal are sniffing around to see if Newcastle would be willing to discuss offloading the 21-year-old are highly questionable. But Tim Krul is a very ambitious youngster so you never know if he would be interested in joining Arsenal despite penning a new four year deal just last year. The figure being quoted is around £3M
To be honest, I’m surprised many teams don’t inquire about our best youngsters. There is no way of knowing what Mike Ashley could do. He could see the sale of promising youngsters as a way of making money before he bolts. Though he would then have to sell Newcastle at a very cut rate price because the fans and the youngsters are all Newcastle have at the moment.
