According to a report from Italy, Juventus have been working ‘under the radar’ since February 2016 to get Wojciech Szczesny at the club.
Impressing during his two years at Roma, many Arsenal fans want him back at the club to challenge for the number one shirt once again. Arsene Wenger, however, seems to have different plans and the tensions between the pair which saw him leave on loan in the first place seem no less frosty.
The press have been full of reports that a deal has been agreed between the clubs but it seems as if this is a bit premature. Arsenal are seeking €14-15m for the Pole, not an unreasonable figure, but the clubs have yet to find an agreement.
Juve have a four-year, €4.5m-a-year deal sorted for Woj and the Italian report claims that Juventus will hope to ‘realise an idea born in February last year and carried forward under the radar,’ as early as next week.
Given the determination Juventus seemingly have to get Szczesny and the legend they are attempting to replace, you have to wonder what the hell is wrong with Arsenal that they will let him go without so much as a whimper.
A club like Juventus wanting one of your players is a good thing – it means they might be quite decent.
