Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny has revealed he is happy in Roma and could extend his stay beyond the current campaign. Szczesny’s future has been the subject of speculation in recent weeks with the Poland goalkeeper being linked with a move to Liverpool and Everton.
It is claimed that Roma have completed a deal to sign Internacional goalkeeper Allison but Szczesny has now revealed he is open to extending his spell at the Italian Capital beyond this campaign.
“Everyone knows I’m really happy here,” Szczesny told Sky Sport Italia, as quoted by Eurosport.” “I’d like to be able to tell you about my future, but I don’t know what it holds for me. I’ve expressed my intentions to the two clubs and now it’s up to them. I have to decide what’s best for my career.
“The Scudetto race? Obviously, our performances between October and the middle of January have ruled us out of contention. Before then we were playing well and since [Coach Luciano] Spalletti came in we’ve been superb. It’s hard to say what happened but we must be consistent next season – that will be key.
“Of course, we want to secure Champions League qualification. We want to keep this run going that we’ve been on over the last ten games. It’s all about performing consistently. Hopefully, we can finish on a high and make sure we qualify.”
Roma has made 26 league appearances for the Italian side this season.
