Wojciech Szczesny’s agent, David Menasseh, has denied claims that the Polish goalkeeper has agreed terms to join Serie A champions Juventus this summer.
We covered the ‘story’ that Juve were reportedly preparing a £13.8m offer for the 27-year-old, who has revealed his eagerness to return to north London following a successful two-year loan spell at AS Roma in Italy.
Despite this though, it’s unlikely that Woj will be content being second-choice behind an inconsistent Petr Cech, so it’s unsurprising that a number of potential suitors have emerged.
Having kept 14 clean sheets in Italy’s top tier last season, his performances were impressive as he helped Roma secure their best ever finish despite a four-point gap between themselves and eventual Scudetto winners Juve.
Wenger has already confirmed his faith in the Poland international, denying claims Arsenal will make a move for Sunderland’s Jordan Pickford as they’ve still got Szczesny to return.
Although no quotes have been published by the Polish publication, Prezeglad Sportowy, they claim Menasseh revealed his skepticism about Gianluigi Buffon’s future at Juventus and whether he will continue to play on for another season or two, having not said anything about wanting to end his career.
Napoli and AC Milan are both also reportedly interested, with the latter said to be pondering a move if wonderkid Gianluigi Donnarumma doesn’t sign an improved contract extension in the next two weeks. Szczesny had also, at one point, reportedly agreed to join Napoli.
It’s clear that wherever his future lies, Szczesny wants to continue improving and playing regularly.
If Arsenal cannot guarantee him that, a bidding war could be sparked for his services.
