£8m offer coming for Shay Given?

The sheer thought of it is nauseating but with the transfer window ready to open, the Daily Express is reporting that Arsène Wenger is trying to lure Newcastle 'keeper Shay Given to Arsenal with a £8m offer. The Republic of Ireland international has been the guiding light for the Magpies this campaign and while the much need funds would be welcomed by Joe Kinnear, the cost is too heavy. In a related vein it is equally reported by the Daily Mirror that Sheffield United goalkeeper Paddy Kenny is being lined up as a possible replacement.
