Arsenal it appears are confident of agreeing a second loan deal with Roma for Polish goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny , who joined Arsenal from Legia Warsaw at the age of 16 before displacing the likes of Fabian Fabianski after spending time on loan at Brentford.
Szczesny was impressive during his time at the club (Roma) last season as the Italian capital club finished third in the league behind champions Juventus and
Napoli. At 26, the goalkeeper is ready for first team football, and feels this would not be possible in Arsenal.
According to French Insider, Arsenal are holding out for an agreement of a weekly pay of £45,000 for the goalkeeper with Roma, so as to reduce the club’s expenses on the goalkeeper. This means Arsenal will pay the rest of his £75,000 a week wage. The goalkeeper was earlier tipped to be on his way out back to Arsenal after Roma signed Brazilian goalkeeper Allison for £5.7 million.
Szczesny had shaded Arsenal during one of his interviews in Rome saying, ” if I stay at Roma, it’ll be the opportunity to grow and improve even more. If I return to Arsenal, I’ll make use of my experience.”
“I learned more in four months under Spalletti than in 10 years in England. He puts a lot of importance on playing the ball to feet. One day we trained for over 45 minutes just on goal kicks.”
