Mark to spark keeper merry-go-round
Fulham will reportedly move for West Ham's Robert Green if Mark Schwarzer joins Arsenal, with the Hammers tipped to move for Asmir Begovic.Have we been asleep at the wheel, distracted by the World Cup, or just don't trust the News of the World?
Schwarzer, 37, is expected to complete a switch across London to The Emirates following the end of Australia's World Cup adventure.
The former Middlesbrough custodian will cost the Gunners around £3.5million, according to the News of the World, and the Cottagers will put that fee towards a deal for England blunder keeper Green.
Other than the speculation above, other reports have David James going to Fulham instead of Green. I'm a big fan of Begovic's and would love to see him get a starting gig. Of course I would love to see him move to Arsenal and be their starting keeper for 3, rather than Schwarzer for between 9 and 12. Or maybe Benaglio or some other keeper from outside the Premier League. Just for fantasy team cost purposes.
However it shakes out, it's certain to make for a more interesting August with lots of dominoes falling.
