Wojciech Szczesny has arrived in Turin ahead of the goalkeeper’s move from Arsenal to Juventus which could be completed in the coming days.
It never seemed likely that we would see Wojciech Szczesny in an Arsenal shirt again and it seems that we’ve had official confirmation that that will be the case.
Juventus have taken to Twitter to show that the Arsenal goalkeeper has landed in Turin ahead of a proposed move to the Serie A champions.

Szczesny has, of course, spent the last two seasons in Italy with AS Roma and after that deal expired, was courted by a number of clubs in Serie A.
The Polish stopper reportedly had his heart set on a move to the Italian champions with manager Max Allegri planning to make Szczesny an understudy to Gigi Buffon ahead of the great Italian’s rumoured retirement next year.

We reported last week that Juventus had agreed on a deal with the player himself and that it was just up to the Italian club to match Arsenal’s reported £10 million valuation of Szczesny.
It now looks like just a matter of time until Wojciech Szczesny completes his permanent move to Serie A and Juventus. It’s a shame the Polish stopper never achieved his full potential at the Emirates but with Petr Cech and Emi Martinez expected to remain at Arsenal next season, it’s the right time for him to move on.
