Arsenal expected to come forward for former star’s signature

Arsenal expected to come in with an offer to re-sign former goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny this summer.

The Polish international is currently plying his trade in Italy with Juventus, but with a number of wholesale changes currently happening at the club, he could well become available.

Fabio Paratici is confirmed as leaving the club next month, while Juve also confirmed today that manager Andrea Pirlo was also leaving, with Max Allegri expected to take his place.

While these moves are going on behind the scenes, a contract is believed to be on the table for AC Milan’s Gigio Donnarumma, who is out of contract.

The Italian’s arrival in Turin will likely seal the end of Szczesny’s hold on the number one spot, and an exit would appear set, with La Gazzetta(via TuttoJuve) claiming that Arsenal are expected to ‘come forward’ with an offer in the coming days.

The Gunners are also braced for their own potential departure of their number one Bernd Leno, who admitted he was open to a new challenge last month.

Would Szczesny be welcome back at the Emirates? Should the polish goalkeeper have been given more time to cement himself as our number one previously?

    I would take him back, i think he is about the same in quality as Leno in the area’s that he is strong with but he excels past Leno in other areas.
    He is much more commanding in the box and communicates more than Leno.
    Also having him back would add another homegrown player to our squad right?

    I get that he is now 31 but i dont think that would be an issue, it wouldnt be for me

    Wenger should have never let him go, but much like our current manager, loose lips and cigarette tips are a sure fire way to find yourself firmly within the proverbial doghouse, which usually leads to a change of addresses…not sure if bringing him back at this age and juncture remedies our obvious past mistakes, but I guess it would depend on if this meant we were looking to sell Leno, so we were looking for a true number 1, or if this was some sort of strategy to truly shore up our depth…I doubt either Keeper would accept the latter narrative

    Great goalkeeper. Would be a good re-signing IMO.

    I’d prefer Szczesny to LENO.On a par with shot stopping, though is more commanding and would catch more, punch less and move the ball out quicker from feet too, but do not think it will happen this summer. Hope it does though.

    100% have him back he is Arsenal through and through, better all round than Leno and he’s homegrown
