Wojciech Szczesny has had a fruitful loan year at Roma, but where he will be playing next season is still to be decided. There have been many Arsenal rumours linking David Ospina to Besiktas, with talks still ongoing, and if that happens then it is likely that the Polish international will be returning to the Emirates as backup to Petr Cech next season.
Certainly today listening to Wojciech talk about Wenger it sounds like he still very much considers himself to be an Arsenal player. When asked about the possibility of Le Prof leaving Arsenal to manage England, Szczesny said: “I am sure he would be a great thing for England but my main interest is Arsenal and I hope it doesn’t happen, for the sake of Arsenal not for the sake of England.
“England had a disappointing Euro 2016 and changes will be made but, hopefully, that will not affect our club. I hope it is something that will not happen because he is doing a fantastic job at Arsenal and I’d love to see him stay there.”
“My main interest is Arsenal.” “Our club.” Does that sound like a player that expects to be returning to Roma next season? It sounds to me like Wenger will allow Ospina to move on and bring our crazy Pole back to the fold.
When he was directly asked if he would be returning to Wenger’s team next season, he still refused to confirm one way or the other. “I really don’t know. Now I have time to relax and think about my future,” he said.
I think he’s telling porkies. What do you think?
