Despite being the Gunners’ No. 1 for several seasons, the Polish keeper found himself surplus to requirements during the summer when Arsene Wenger swooped to sign Chelsea stopper Petr Cech.
Szczesny was shipped off to AS Roma on loan, where he has since featured 20 times for the Giallorossi.
However, while the Polish keeper has been responsible for a series of fine performances—notably in the 0-0 draw with BATE Borisov in the Champions League—the 25-year-old hasn’t yet truly convinced, and has been responsible for a series of underwhelming showings.
According to the Mirror, the Italian giants have told the Gunners that they are not keen on signing the keeper on a permanent deal, and it therefore looks like the Pole will be heading back to the Emirates Stadium at the campaign’s end.
The tabloid note that the capital club have agreed to sign Internacional stopper Alisson, a deal which looks likely to curtail Szczesny’s time in Serie A.
