Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern are discussing what sort of changes could occur in North London this summer and an intriguing debate has risen.
The Sun has suggested Arsenal could bring Wojciech Szczesny back into the fold next season, as second-choice stopper David Ospina seems increasingly likely to be on the move this summer as he seeks more regular opportunities.
Szczesny has spent two successful season’s on-loan with Roma, who are reportedly keen on a permanent deal, but Arsenal could consider a u-turn on the future of the Polish international and hand him another chance in the first-team.
Arsenal have been linked with new additions between the sticks, with Sunderland’s Jordan Pickford and Benfica’s Ederson amongst those being named, but bringing Szczesny back would be the simplest, and cheapest, solution.
However, our landlord is concerned with Szczesny’s off-field controversies as he’s pointed out he didn’t cast himself in the best of lights during his initial spell with Arsenal and there are concerns as to whether he’s first-team material.
Signing a young goalkeeper like Ederson or Pickford could prove to be more beneficial, especially if they’re to play understudy to Petr Cech initially and learn from one of the greatest goalkeeper’s in Premier League history.
Should Arsenal reinstate Wojciech Szczesny in the first-team? Let us know in the comments below!
