Wojciech Szczesny says his Arsenal future is in Arsene Wenger’s hands as speculation mounts that Roma could make the Pole’s loan switch permanent at the end of the season.
The 24-year-old, who is out of contract at the Emirates next summer, has been linked with a €16 million move, however, the keeper has been quick to make clear that the Serie A giants do not have a buyout clause as part of their current agreement.
“I owe a lot to [coach Luciano] Spalletti, he has made me feel his confidence,” Szczesny told Sky Sports Italia.
“I worked well with [former coach Rudi] Garcia, but Spalletti has improved us even further. When a player feels a relationship with the coach it makes things better.
“My future is in the hands of Arsene Wenger, I’m curious myself. I’ve been in his hands since I started my career as a 16-year-old.
“In my contract these are no terms of purchase for Roma. I’m happy however that two clubs like Arsenal and Roma fight over me.”
Szczesny fell out of favour at the Emirates in the second half of the 2014/15 season after being disciplined for smoking in the away changing rooms after a defeat against Southampton. He fell further down the pecking when Petr Cech was signed from Chelsea.
