Arsenal’s goalkeeper Wojciech Szczsesny is set for a permanent move to the Serie A, with AC Milan and Napoli reportedly keen on his signature.
According to Tuttomercatoweb, AC Milan are weighing up the prospect of losing young star Gianluigi Donnarumma who has stalled on committing his future at the San Siro due to the club’s toils on and off the pitch.
The Serie A giants are targeting a replacement with experience of the Italian top-flight as a result and Szczesny’s impressive two years at AS Roma makes him an attractive proposition.
As for Napoli, the Sky Blues are looking to replace Pepe Reina who is alleged to have fallen out with the club. The Spaniard’s place in the first-team is believed to be up for grabs and the Arsenal goalkeeper’s maturity in the past 24 months puts him high on their wishlist.
He wouldn’t break the bank either.
Szczsesny rejoined parent club Arsenal this summer but isn’t guaranteed a starting place next season given Petr Cech is first-choice. The Polish international has just one year left on his deal too and hasn’t been given an indicaton from Arsenal that an extension will be on the table this summer.
As a result, he’s likely to welcome interest from Italy. Milan reportedly have Wojciech Szczsesny along with Iker Casillas and Asmir Begović as transfer targets.
Football Italia believe Napoli have won the race to sign the Pole, but there has been no official confirmation made by either party which suggests any deal is still very much in its infancy.
