Juventus reach agreement with Arsenal over Szczesny

Goal.com logo Goal.com 17-07-2017

Juventus have agreed a fee with Arsenal in the region of £10.5m for Wojciech Szczesny and the Polish stopper is set to complete his move in the next 48 hours, Goal understands.

Szczesny spent the past two seasons on loan at Roma after losing his starting berth at Emirates Stadium and has no interest in a move back to London.

What are odds on Barca beating Juventus?

The goalkeeper would be playing second fiddle behind Petr Cech if he were to return to Arsenal and has therefore set his sights on a transfer to Turin.

Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri sees Szczesny as the long-term successor of Gianluigi Buffon, who is expected to hang up his gloves in 2018.

Szczesny's permanent exit would pave the way for Emiliano Martinez to become Cech's deputy in 2017-18, with Arsenal ready to cash in on wantaway David Ospina, too.

The Colombian shot stopper is keen to leave the club in order to get regular first-team action elsewhere and an offer in the region of £5m would suffice to lure him away from the Gunners.

There was interest from Fenerbahce earlier in the summer, but a move to the Istanbul giants eventually fell through after the Turkish club refused to increase their £3m offer for the goalkeeper.
