Arsenal Want Krul But Concerned Over Injury!

Last updated : 14 July 2013 By Footy Mad - Editor

Krul says he will be fit for the start of the new Premier League season.

Wenger is known to be on the look out for a new goalkeeper and has also been heavily linked with moves for Stoke star Asmir Begovic and QPR's Julio Cesar.

However reports claim that Krul is also on his wanted list and the French tactician could be ready to offer the Magpies as much as £15million for the Dutch international.

Despite all the speculation, Krul says he is just focused on getting back to full fitness following a shoulder operation in April, and hopes to be ready for the big kick off against Manchester City on August 9.

"I will be fit for the first game of the season," the 25-year-old revealed. "I'll try to get a couple of friendly games to get myself fully up to speed ? and I'm right on schedule."

Former Man Utd skipper Bryan Robson had a similar shoulder problem, and it became a concern for him during the rest of his career, and never recovered 100%.

The pressure is extra on Krul, the fact he is a goalkeeper.

Only 5% Wanted Pardew - What's The Percentage Now? PLEASE VOTE

Mike Ashley stunned us all ... and I mean ALL ... when he sacked Chris Hughton and brought in Alan Pardew.

Apparently, Ashley knows Pardew from a London casino the pair used to visit, and the former West Ham boss talked his way into the job.

At the time the appointment was made, ourselves (NU-MAD) and the Chronicle held a poll to ask the Newcastle fans if they were happy with the new manager.

Both polls showed only 5% of Toon fans were happy, and if the truth was known, I'd say 3% of those were Mackems gatecrashing the voting!

So ... with Pardew two and half years into the job ... has he turned the voting around? Has he won you over?

We were still in the relegation dog-fight until Swansea won at Wigan a week before the season ended, and there was growing concern after heavy home defeats to Sunderland and Liverpool.

Pardew gave his excuses, saying his squad was "wafer thin and too small to tackle a long season".

Yet on Thursday - having lost Steve Harper, Danny Simpson, James Perch and Dan Gosling on the way to Crystal Palace (FOUR PLAYERS LESS) he said: "I'm not too concerned because we have a big squad".

Confused? We certainly were.

So click the button - PLEASE VOTE.

Is he the man for the job ... or not?
