Gunners target £8 million Championship star

Arsenal are preparing a £8 million move for Wolves goalkeeper Wayne Hannessy in order to replace the outgoing Jens Lehman. Arsene Wenger has apparently been impressed with Hennessy at both club and national level this season and is ready to bring him to the Emirates.

Wolves boss Mick McCarthy is keen to hold onto the Welsh international but it is thought that Hennessy would be attracted by the Premier League giants. The 21-year old kept 19 clean sheets this season, as Wolves narrowly missed out on the play-offs.

I personally think Hennessy is a magnificent keeper and I do feel he would be capable of playing at the Emirates. I also feel that Arsenal won't be the only club interested and there has been rumours that Everton, Newcastle and Middlesbrough are also interested in the player.
