Yeah, 8 or 9 years isn't that much.
True, but when you think about it, Seaman was very very good for his age. Keepers peak around 30-32, and go down hill quickly from there. Rustu is about 30 or so, and I say he peaked at the WC. He hasn't exactly been superb at his club since then.

That makes him 29.
Right, so my reckoning was a bit off, but it doesn't change the fact that the guy has already peaked. Picking him up now would be a big mistake. Especially considering the money that his club is asking for him.

I don't think he's finished. How much are they asking for him?

I think that he will be an average keeper for the remainder of his career, and they are asking more than Arsenal will pay.
