Mark Schwarzer has handed in a transfer request. Mark Hughes will not be keen to let him go but is his arrival at the Emirates now rather likely?
He certainly has experience and has been very solid for Fulham over recent seasons. However question marks do remain over his ability to perform at the highest level, his world cup performances were hardly brilliant and he does not have age on his side. Still, when Lucasz Fabianski has his eyes on the No1 spot I would take anything else. The bonus of signing Schwarzer would be that Szczesny could be groomed to take over in a year or two's time when Schwarzer retires to a coaching role. A solid character with experience may be just what we need at the moment.
