Arsenal are claimed to have slapped a €20 Million price-tag on the head of Wojciech Sczcesny this summer, but a permanent move to Roma now looks in doubt.
The 26 year-old has been in impressive for in Serie A this year, fighting off all challengers in the bid to earn a starting role in the side, and was believed to be keen on extending his stay in Italy, but his deal appears to have hit the rocks.
The Italian side are believed to be closing on the signing of goalkeeper Alisson today, with the Brazilian having jetted in from Internacional. The 23 year-old has been linked with the switch for some time, and looks set to complete his move before joining up with his international squad for the Copa America next month.
Roma were thought to be keen on keeping the Polish international on a permanent deal this summer, but are now said to be considering another loan deal. Arsenal are in no need for a third goalkeeper in the squad, with both Petr Cech and David Ospina also in the race for first-team outings.
It is not yet known whether the Gunners would be willing to agree to a second loan deal, and may try and look for another potential suitor. Roma are claimed to have ‘baulked‘ at the €20 Million asking fee, which puts some serious doubt on the proposed transfer.
Is Sczcesny worth the asking price? Will he end up back at the Emirates Stadium?
