Arsène Wenger is staying tight-lipped over his plans for Arsenal's goalkeeper position.

Manuel Almunia and Lukasz Fabianski have both come in for criticism this season and some are tipping the Arsenal manager to strengthen that department by entering the transfer market this summer.

Wenger has Vito Mannone and Wojciech Szczesny emerging through the ranks too but he kept his cards close to his chest when asked about his long-term goalkeeping options at his pre-match press conference.

"I don't think it is the best moment to talk about that," said Wenger.

"I never said that he [Almunia] will be my long-term No 1. I think he is a great goalkeeper and he is in competition with Fabianski.

"But I want to see how we finish [the season] now so I don't think it is the best period to talk about individual players."
