Wojciech Szczesny is a summer target for Napoli, according to regional publication Il Mattino.
The Poland international, who is currently on loan for a second successive season with AS Roma, has earned plaudits for his performances in Serie A this season where he leads the clean sheet charts with 14. It’s thought the 27-year-old is open to signing a permanent deal with the Giallorossi should they wish to trigger a clause inserted in his loan agreement this summer.
Szczesny remains under contract at the Emirates until 30 June 2018 although he hasn’t played a game in Arsenal colours since the 2015 FA Cup final.
It seems hard to believe that he’ll be brought back into the Gunners fold following the furore over his smoking antics, however, with doubts over the future of David Ospina and Petr Cech not getting any younger it wouldn’t be the worst decision. Back in January, 59% of Arseblog News readers backed him to revive his Arsenal career.
In the meantime, with Roma and Arsenal in no rush to make a decision, it looks as though Napoli are keeping tabs on the Pole’s situation and are also monitoring Juventus’ keeper Neto.
Napoli’s current first choice keeper is 34-year-old Pepe Reina.
