It has been confirmed now that Premier League giants Arsenal have finally agreed to extend Wojciech Szczesny’s stay at Roma, with his loan deal being prolonged for yet another season and the club will now pay some of his wages in the process, after having talks with the Serie A giants for quite some time. The 26 year old Poland international was quite impressive in Italy despite falling down the pecking order at the Emirates, first to David Ospina and then to both the Colombian and new signing Petr Cech as well, with the former Chelsea man claiming the number one spot under manager Arsene Wenger.
The goalie who began his senior career with the Gunners in 2009 spent the previous campaign away from north London and impressed for the Romans, which urged the club to extend his stay.
After talks to extend his stay in the Italian capital were being stalled over the past few days, a deal was finally agreed to, though it was once again a temporary one.
Italian newspaper Il Tempo claimed that negotiations finally had resulted in Szczesny now remaining at the Stadio Olimpico for yet another campaign, as he is surplus to Wenger’s requirements at present.
It means that the Pole will not will be remaining with the Londoners for next term, as the veteran Cech will be the first choice keeper once again.
Arsenal finished at second spot in the top flight of English football in the previous campaign and ended yet another trophyless campaign under the French manager.
