Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny may not be coming back to Arsenal after all.
According to Sun Sport, Szczesny is set to return to AS Roma on a loan spell for the 2016-17 season – only this time the Serie A giants will have an option to buy him permanently for £15 million.
This past year Szczesny made 43 appearances between Roma and his native Poland, recording ten clean sheets in the process.
Various off-the-field issues in the 2014-15 season led to a falling out between Szczesny and Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, and he was benched for a large portion of the end of the season. He was the starting goalkeeper for Arsenal’s 4-0 FA Cup Final win over Aston Villa – which was ultimately the last game he would play in a Gunners uniform.
During the 2013-14 season, Szczesny won the Premier League Golden Glove award, which he jointly shared with then-Chelsea stopper Petr Cech. Ironically, Cech would replace Szczesny as the Arsenal starting stopper prior to the start of the season following his transfer from Chelsea.
