Arsenal fans have had their say on the debate between Petr Cech and Wojciech Szczesny after reports this week suggested that Arsene Wenger was eyeing a move for the Chelsea man to replace his current No.1, according to the Evening Standard.
Szczesny hasn’t started a Premier League or Champions League game since the now infamous fixture at St Mary’s Stadium against Southampton on New Years Day.
The Polish international gifted the opposition two goals and later reportedly lit-up a cigarette in the showers to compound what has since been a costly day for Szczesny (via the Mirror).
David Ospina has since taken up the reins as Arsenal’s first choice keeper and despite his steady displays, the Colombian has done little to show that he can be a long-term success at a club harbouring ambitions of winning the Premier League.
The Arsenal fans have since seemingly come to a unanimous conclusion according to a poll on the Evening Standard where 78% of them voted for Cech to come in and replace Szczesny.
Despite his tender age for a goalkeeper, Szczesny hasn’t shown the progression required at the top level, when you compare his development to David de Gea and Thibaut Courtois’s emergence in recent years.
If Arsenal are to finally land the league title, then they will have to add the world class ‘keeper Wenger has needed since the departure of Jens Lehmann.
