Former Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny was signed to replace skipper Gianluigi Buffon as champions Juventus look to make it five Serie A wins out of five against Fiorentina on Wednesday.
Coach Massimiliano Allegri wants to rotate with an eye on Saturday’s Turin derby and Szczesny, who signed from Arsenal in the summer after two years on loan at Roma, will come in for Buffon a week after Juventus’ 3-0 Champions League flop in Barcelona.
However, according to Calciomercato, the Serie A giants are now interested in Atletico Madrid’s Jan Oblak as manager Massimo Allegri likes the idea of having two number one keepers at the club.
It’s not the situation Szczesny expected, as he traded away a year as a starter so he could join Juventus. Arsenal offered little resistance to the Polish international leaving last summer. Although fans thought he could have replaced current first-choice keeper Petr Cech, Arsenal accepted a relatively modest £11m from Juventus.
