Arsenal have reportedly agreed to allow Wojciech Szczesny to rejoin Roma on loan for this season.
The Poland international goalkeeper spent the 2015-16 campaign on loan with the Italian giants, making 34 Serie A appearances to help Roma to a third-place finish behind Juventus and Napoli.
According to Sky Italia, cited by Sky Sports, Roma have been in negotiations to extend Szczesny’s stay, and a deal is now in place for the 26-year-old to return to the Giallorossi for another year.
Szczesny has made 181 appearances for Arsenal since making his debut in a League Cup tie with West Bromwich Albion in 2009, but a second spell at Roma would suggest his Gunners career is over.
Arsene Wenger addressed Arsenal’s long-standing goalkeeper issue by signing Petr Cech from London rivals Chelsea last summer, while Colombia number one David Ospina represents excellent back up.
Szczesny won the latest of his 27 international caps for Poland at Euro 2016 before an injury ended his campaign prior to his country’s dramatic penalty shootout defeat to Portugal in the quarter-finals.
