If the latest Arsenal transfer rumours coming out of Italy and Serie A are true, then it could well be the case that the on loan Arsenal and Poland international stopper Wojciech Szczesny is back in north London next month, as his current club AS Roma are set to sign a new permanent number one.
The Mirror is reporting that the Italian keeper Salvatore Sirigu refused to play for PSG in their final Champions League group game after losing his first choice status to youngster Kevin Trapp and Roma are set to offer him a lifeline back into Serie A, terminating the loan deal for Shezzer early.
This is perhaps a bit of good news for the Gunners, as a few days ago Metro was reporting that our current second choice keeper David Ospina was unhappy with his lack of playing time and was ready to mobe on. The Turkish club Besiktas are apparently close to agreeing a loan deal in January with a view to a permanent transfer in the summer.
The fact that Szczesny played a blinder for Roma in their own final Champions League group game, with his string of top class saves almost single handedly keeping them in the competition, is another bonus for Arsenal and surely working under the brilliant Petr Cech will do the Pole some good.
So will it be all chance at Arsenal in the reserve keeper situation?
