Arsenal’s efforts to bolster their goalkeeping ranks have hit an early snag, as the club’s opening bid for Wolves’ Dan Bentley has been swiftly rejected.

According to reports from Standard Sport, the Gunners’ initial offer of £50,000 for the 30-year-old English goalkeeper was deemed unacceptable by Wolves, who value Bentley at a significantly higher price.

The north London club had identified Bentley as a potential third-choice goalkeeper to strengthen their options in the pre-season and beyond. However, Wolves’ valuation of the player appears to be a long way off Arsenal’s initial proposal, underscoring the challenge the Gunners face in securing their transfer targets this summer.

Bentley, who made just five appearances for Wolves last season, has been serving as a backup to the club’s first-choice goalkeeper. Despite his limited playing time, Arsenal had apparently seen the experienced shot-stopper as a reliable option to provide depth and competition within their own goalkeeping department.

The rejection of Arsenal’s opening bid is an early setback in the club’s efforts to reshape their squad, as manager Mikel Arteta looks to build a team capable of mounting a sustained title challenge in the upcoming season.

As Arsenal regroup and prepare to submit a revised offer, the club will need to navigate the complexities of the summer transfer window with skill and determination if they are to secure the necessary upgrades to their squad.
