Wojciech Szczesny & Juventus
Wojciech Szczesny has been mentioned as the successor to Gianluigi Buffon at Juventus for months.
The Pole has spent the past two seasons at Roma and impressed, which makes many Gooners wonder why he isn’t being kept by Arsenal.
Arsene Wenger has a trio of goalkeepers already at the club in Petr Cech, David Ospina and Emiliano Martinez.
Presumably, the Arsenal boss is keen not to complicate things by bringing Szczesny back into the reckoning.
Deal virtually done
According to the Guardian on Monday, Szczesny’s move to Juventus is virtually a done deal. The broadsheet report:
Wojciech Szczesny is set to join Juventus after agreeing a deal in principle with the Italian champions. Juventus and Arsenal are in the final stages of concluding the deal with the fee expected to be around £10m.
The Polish international will sign a long-term contract and earn almost £70,000 a week. The 27-year-old has spent the last two seasons at Roma and is now ready to permanently leave the London club he joined in 2009.
Is that a good deal for the Polish keeper?
In a summer when Edersen has been bought by Man City for over 30 million, it sounds like Juve are getting a deal.
