Arsene Wenger has basically confirmed the transfer of former Arsenal number one goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny.
Szczesny who lost his number one position in goal to David Ospina last season, found himself further behind Arsenal’s goalkeeping pecking order after the signing of veteran Petr Cech from Chelsea this summer.
The Gunners are set to host the annual Emirates Cup this weekend and the Arsenal boss revealed that the 25-year-old Polish international will not be involved in the competition as he closes in on a loan switch to AS Roma.
“Szczesny will not be involved [this weekend] because he might move to Roma. I hope I can give 90 minutes to every player,” he said.
“He could go. We are pretty much done, it’s down to paperwork.”
“Szcsesny is a top-class goalkeeper and we have three who are all top. For one of the keepers, if he can play somewhere it is good.”
Wenger added: “I believe he will have a future at Arsenal because I rate him highly. I don’t want the opportunity he had at a young age to be wasted.”
