Wenger moves for Enyeama  

Saturday, 13 June 2009

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is said to be on the verge of signing Nigeria goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama, according to reports out of Israel.
Wenger was at the Stade Geoffroy Guichard in Saint Etienne to see Nigeria stun France 1-0 and Israeli website Telesport reported that the Arsenal manager was impressed enough to make enquiries about the goalkeeper.

"Wenger is looking for another goalkeeper to the squad and in the coming days Enyeama should move to Arsenal," Telesport reported on their website.

"Hapoel want 2 million euro for him out of which his former club, Bnei Yehuda will get thirty percent."

It is not the first time Wenger will be casting lustful glances in the direction of the former Enyimba goalkeeper.

Following a stellar Nations Cup outing in 2006, Wenger almost signed Enyeama, but the deal collapsed midway through negotiations.

This season, Enyeama's stock has risen sky high, and the goalkeeper was voted Player of the Season in Israel after only letting in 28 goals in 33 appearances.

He is also yet to concede a goal in six consecutive matches for Nigeria; five World Cup qualifiers and one friendly match, against France.

Enyeama was rumoured to be on his way to Spanish La Liga side Espanyol, but that door was shut when the club extended the contract of their Cameroon goalkeeper Carlos Kameni.
