Szczesny is currently enjoying his second loan spell at the Serie A giants after falling out-of-favour under Arsene Wenger almost two years ago following some questionable displays between the sticks.

The Polish international must be doing something right over in Italy as the Express report claims that Roma are now ready to make the goalkeepers move permanent this month.

The newspaper says that Roma have an agreement in place to sign the 26-year-old for £14m at the end of the season but they want to bring forward the deal to prevent other clubs from getting involved.

I always had high hopes for Szczesny at Arsenal as I think he has all the ingredients to be a top class keeper but sadly it just hasn’t worked out for him in north London so far.

I personally think he was thrown in to the first team too soon and if he was given more time to develop and mature before taking over the gloves, I wouldn’t be surprised if he was now our established No.1.

However, it looks as though his career at the Emirates is set to come to an end and £14m for an out-of-favour goalkeeper isn’t a bad deal.
