Arsene Wenger insists that Arsenal aren’t in pursuit of Sunderland’s Jordan Pickford because the club already has enough goalkeepers.

As is so common when young goalkeepers visit the Emirates, Pickford had the game of his life on Tuesday night.

The Gunners had 36 shots, 11 of which the 23-year-old saved, preventing the scoreline against the relegated Black Cats from becoming embarrassing.

Speaking after the match, Wenger spoke about Arsenal’s apparent interest in the Sunderland shot-stopper and insisted that if there’s one area the club don’t need to strengthen, it’s in goal.

“I think we had 36 shots on goal, which is the highest ever in the Premier League,” Wenger said after Arsenal’s 2-0 win.

“The keeper saved 11 of them so he did extremely well.

“We have plenty of goalkeepers.

“We have Petr Cech, we have Ospina, we have Wojciech, who is on loan at Roma and has had an exceptional season.

“We also have Emi Martinez. If there is one thing we don’t have to buy it’s a goalkeeper.”

While Pickford appears to want to stay with Sunderland, it’s likely that he’ll sign for Everton, given that his team need the money now.

The Toffees have been heavily linked with the lad ever since it became apparent that the Black Cats were going down.
