Wojciech Szczesny set to join AS Roma

The Poland international confirmed via his Twitter account that he is set to leave Arsenal in a bid to seal a season long loan move to Rudi Garcia’s side

Following the arrival of Petr Cech who will be the club’s new number 1 this season, Arsene Wenger had to cut one goalkeeper for the new campaign and that person had to be Szczesny who last season, had a few off the field problems to deal with.

And with David Ospina already given assurances of sufficient game time, the Pole was always going to be the one to be forced to look for another club. Now, the 25 year old is set to depart for Rome where he will don the colours of the Giallorossi for a whole season.

“Good evening, Giallorossi supporters, I am very happy because tomorrow I go to Rome. See you then,” he said in a video on his personal social networking page.
