Goalkeeper’s desired Arsenal transfer in doubt after new decision

Wojciech SzczesnyArsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern are debating the future of one of their recognisable players, after the Gunners changed their stance on one possible deal.

Italian outlet Corriere Dello Sport says Roma’s chances of landing Wojciech Szczesny on-loan again next term are in serious doubt after the Gunners refused to subsidise the Poland international’s wages for another season.

Szczesny has spent the year on-loan in Rome after the arrival of Petr Cech at the Emirates Stadium last summer saw him plummet down the pecking order, having already lost his first-team spot midway through the season to David Ospina after some poor performances.

The 26-year-old has showed improved displays at Roma but his future remains up in the air, with it likely Arsenal will let either Ospina or Szczesny leave permanently this summer, and that stance gives the Italian outfit a problem.

With Arsenal seemingly uninterested in loaning Szczesny out again, Roma may be forced to pursue a permanent deal. Whilst their finances may not currently allow that, potential departures in the summer should free up funds to complete a deal.

Should Arsenal keep Szczesny ahead of Ospina? Let us know in the comments below!
