Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny is set to sign for Juventus, with the two clubs agreeing an £8m deal that will see the Polish international eventually replace Gianluigi Buffon.

According to the Mirror, Szczesny looks to be ending an 11-year association with Arsenal, having signed as a teenager from Legia Warsaw and going on to win the Premier League Golden Glove in his time at the Emirates Stadium.

The 27-year-old spent the last two seasons out on loan with AS Roma, making 81 appearances in all competitions for the Serie A outfit, and doing enough to convince Juventus that he could replace Buffon in 12 months.

Having fallen out with Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger which led to his departure to Italy, Szczesny has matured a lot in the previous 24 months and is now one of the best goalkeepers in Europe.

With David Ospina linked with a move to Fenerbahce, Arsenal could be short on secondary options between the sticks to Petr Cech. It was why many wanted Szczesny retained this summer, but Emi Martinez looks set to be the club’s new deputy in 2017/18.
