Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny reportedly agrees terms with Napoli after two-year Roma loan expires

Polish goalkeeper set to stay in Serie A if Gunners and Italian giants can agree a fee for the shot-stopper

Arsenal’s Wojciech Szczesny will stay in Serie A – but will join Napoli instead of Roma.

The goalkeeper has spent the last two years on-loan from the Gunners at I Lupi and became a firm favourite with the Stadio Olimpico faithful.

But according to reports in Italian publication II Mattino, he has already agreed to join domestic rivals Napoli.

The Polish international was due to return to the Emirates this summer following his double-season stint in the capital.

Roma did have the option to turn Szczesny’s move into a permanent one.

However, they are not expected to explore that possibility due to the fact they see Brazilian Alisson as being their No1.

And that leaves the path open for Napoli to push ahead to complete a deal for the 27-year-old.

They have already reportedly held talks with his representatives.

A three-year contract has been placed on the table for the stopper.

All that leaves is for Napoli and FA Cup winners Arsenal to agree a fee for the star.

Szczesny moved to North London back in 2009 from Legia Warsaw and has previously been sent out on loan to Brentford.
