The agent of Wojciech Szczesny insists the Arsenal keeper won’t make a decision about his future until he’s spoken to Arsene Wenger despite rumours linking him with a move to Juventus.
Yesterday Sky Sports Italia claimed that the Champions League finalists had agreed a £14 million deal for the Poland international. Szczesny has impressed during two loan spells at AS Roma and is mooted as a long-term successor to 39-year-old Gianluigi Buffon.
While it’s obvious the keeper is in demand, representative David Menasseh told Polish paper Przeglad Sportowy that no agreement has been reached.
As you’ll recall, Wojciech hasn’t played for the Gunners since the 2015 FA Cup final against Aston Villa. He’d previously been disciplined by the club for smoking after a January defeat to Southampton in January of that year.
While there’s no doubt about the Pole’s quality – this season he kept more clean sheets than any other keeper in Serie A – his temperament has often been questioned. That said, he insisted in a recent interview that time away from Arsenal and the experience of a new culture has helped him mature.
Arsenal could well look to bring Wojciech back into the fold as competition for Petr Cech with David Ospina looking very likely to depart the club in the coming months.
