Arsenal Fail In Ajax Keeper Bid

Arsenal have failed in a £7million bid to sign Ajax goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg, who now looks certain to join Roma.
The 28-year-old has been in discussions with the Serie A giants over a possible transfer when the Gunners stepped in to hijack the move.
The Holland international snubbed Arsenal’s move as he has already verbally agreed to join the Italian side, according to Dutch newspaper AD.
The north London side are looking for competition for Polish duo Wojciech Szczesny and Lukasz Fabianski with manuel Almunia set to leave the Emirates this summer.
Veteran Jens Lehmann has already been released and youngster Vito Mannone attracting interest from a number of Championship clubs.
Stekelenburg will now complete the move to the Stadio Olimpico early next week and is another player set to slip through boss Arsene Wenger’s fingers.
