    Sebastian Saja of San Lorenzo in the Argetinian League, in talks with the Gunners. You know you watch too much soccer when you say, I watched this guy against Boca Juniors and was impressed. He gave up a couple but it was his defense. Hes quick, with great reflexes. Max Bretos on FSW seemed to think alot of clubs were after him.

    We'd expect nothing less from the ArseAm chief scout.

    A Swedish Gunner says Swedish Channel4 are reporting that Rami Shaaban has signed a 2-year deal with Arsenal.

    Sounds like he wants to come, but the deal isn't finalized as yet.

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/africa/africans_abroad/2223665.stm

    "I was in London yesterday and I signed a two-year contract with Arsenal," Shaaban revealed.

    "However I don't want to be over-optimistic since the financial matters are not settled yet. It is between the two clubs now."



    Interesting also that he was born in Sweden to English and Egyptian parents and might play internationally for either Sweden or Egypt in the relatively near future.

    Rami Shabaan (Shaw-bahn) - I heard it mispronounced by everyone on Sky...


    The Swedish national team are looking into Rami now. He's a great keeper, but is a bit unfortunate to not be the No.1 keeper at Djurgården. The No.1 job belongs to Andreas Isaksson who was involved with Sweden in the world cup. I heard what Rami said and it seems to me like Arsenal have offered him a 2-year deal and he is just waiting for Arsenal and Djurgården to agree a fee. That fee is rumoured to be about £600,000. That's good money for Djurgården who did not have to pay much for him as he moved there from Nacka who is in Division 2 in Sweden almost 3 seasons ago.

    I've seen Rami play many many times so if you have any questions about him, post them here and I'll be more than happy to answer them.

    You now have Rami, its official, he's been signed for an undisclosed fee.

    He's a quality keeper, there is no doubt about that.

    Is this a guy that can come in and take over for Seaman in one year?

    Rami is a keeper with good controll of the box and he can organize his defence well. The fact that he speaks fluent english (like most swedish people) will definatly help him as well. He has always done well in pressure matches, and kept a clean sheet in a 3-0 win over AIK a few weeks ago. AIK are Djurgården's biggest hate-rivals and Djurgården haven't beaten them in 7 years.

    So basicly, he's a good stopper in every category and can preform in big matches (that is the biggest match in the country)


    I think it possible he could take over for seaman in a year, but not really likely. Really depends on how much of a chance he gets to play this season. Can't wait for the league cup so I can see him play.

    Our Uruguayan "Keeper for the Week" has just signed for Standard Liege of Belgium. Apparently first team football there is more attractive than being at Arsenal?!?!

    But not so much that some loyal servants of the team will cross London to get it.
