Arsenal seems to have finally moved on from the Jamie Vardy debacle and are working to bring in key addition to the team and offload those that are not wanted. One of the unwanted is goal keeper Wojciech Szczesny, who spent last season on loan at Italian club AS Roma. The Poland international who has recently been linked with a move to Liverpool is set to rejoin Arsenal this summer after negotiations over loan extension at AS Roma next season stalled between the two clubs.
The negotiations have hit the rock and the 26-year-old is set to return to Arsenal this summer, with the club yet to decide the future course of action for the stopper, according to the Guardian,
Roma manager Luciano Spalletti has made it known that the Italian club is trying to keep hold of the Arsenal goal keeper despite signing Brazilian goalkeeper Alisson and having Morgan de Sanctis on their books.
Szczesny performed creditably well during his loan spell with Roma and was first-choice goal keeper under former manager Rudi Garcia at the start of the season, and continued between the sticks when Luciano Spalletti took over at the Italian club.
The goal keeper is contracted to Arsenal until the summer of 2018, and it the club is open to extending his contract before sending him out on loan next season.
Szczesny’s future at the club was questioned earlier this year when he took a dig at Arsenal’s coaching staff by admitting that he had learnt more in four months at Roma than he had during his 10-year stay in north London.
The Gunners ‘keeper was quoted by the Guardian.”Arsenal and Roma are talking but I don’t want to worry about it now. Whether I’m an Arsenal player or a Roma player right now, it makes no difference to me. I want to focus on this tournament,”
