With the ongoing Arsenal rumours suggesting that Arsene Wenger is favourite to sign the unhappy Chelsea keeper Petr Cech, the question arises of who will be moved on to make space for the brilliant shot-stopper?
Surely the favourite to go must be Wojciech Szczesny, who has fallen out of favour with Le Prof and is in serious danger of losing his place as the Poland Number One to Lukasz Fabianski, who he ironically displaced at Arsenal. One ex-Poland keeper has already spoken openly about Szczesny being made a “scapegoat” after a poor performance was compounded by him being caught smoking after the match. Now another Polish ex-keeper, Jerzy Dudek, has also urged Szczesny to move away from the Emirates to safeguard his international career. Dudek said: “It’s a serious matter.”
“If I were in his place, I would wonder whether there are still opportunities to arise at Arsenal and wouldn’t wait as long as Fabianski, because you can see that Arsene Wenger is firmly set on David Ospina.
“Fortunately, [Poland] have two other goalkeepers who are able to provide an adequate level in our goal.”
“Lukasz Fabianski is in excellent form and, on the other hand, Artur Boruc is very experienced.
“I think [Adam] Nawalka [Poland manager] will wait to make the decision until the very end. Wojciech is the least likely to play in the match with Ireland.”
Obviously if Petr Cech arrived, no Arsenal fans would be unhappy to lose Szczesny, but if the Chelsea legend moves somewhere else, should Wenger still allow the Pole to leave anyway?
