Following another outstanding International performance, Wolves 'keeper Wayne Hennessey has apparently attracted yet another suitor in the form of Arsenal manager Arsene WEnger

Reports in todays press imply that the normally frugal manager is set to table a bid of £8m for the twenty year old under contract until 2012.

Arsenal may be in the hunt for a new shot stopper, but for Wenger to splash that kind of cash, he'd have to be getting something pretty special.

Like a record breaker?

It's difficult to imagine that there is any real substance in the reports, not least of all as The Mirror's headline has Arsenal chasing James Hennessey, possibly Wayne's little known relative.

An £8m transfer fee for a 'keeper is next to unheard of. The current record fee paid for a goalkeeper is the £9m paid by Sunderland for Craig Gordon, £2m of which is based on appearances, which just pipped the £7.8 United paid for Fabien Barthez.

Given that 'keepers get better with age, and the 4 year deal James, sorry, Wayne signed in January, we can't see Mick McCarthy being cowed by Arsenal's supposed financial bullying and releasing the young Welshman.

Not just yet, anyway.

£8m now? How much in two years?

Might Wayne add yet another record to his CV before too long?
