Deal Agreed For Arsenal Keeper?

Deal Agreed For Arsenal Keeper?

The pain of Saturday's Champions League defeat against Real Madrid is still very raw but football goes on and Juventus are making plans for next season, and beyond, which could involve the arrival of Wojciech Szczesny from Arsenal.

A long-term replacement is needed for Gianluigi Buffon, who looks set to end his distinguished career without a Champions League winners medal? Well, unless Juventus can claim this next season or his Bianconeri career is extended beyond next summer? Arsenal's Szczesny could well be the heir to the legends throne.

Sky Sports has reported a Juventus have 'agreed a deal in principle' with Arsenal to sign Szczesny, who has spent the past two seasons on loan at Roma, for €16m.

The Polish international, under contract at Arsenal until 2018, when Buffon is set to retire, has also agreed terms on a four year contract which would see Szczesny, 27, most likely spend the first year of his Juventus deal on the bench, which was a reason behind his exit from the Premier League club.

A proven keeper in England and Italy, having joined Arsenal from Legia Warsaw in 2006, Szczesny has quite possibly played the last of his 181 games for the North London side, but will this result in him joining the Old Lady?
