Arsenal considering bringing back Szczesny from Juventus

Reports in the UK claim Arsenal are considering signing Juventus goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny amid uncertainty over the homegrown players’ future.

English sources including The Standard report that Arsenal are considering Szczesny’s return this summer.

The Gunners are reportedly considering signing a local goalkeeper as some players brought up in the club’s academy, such as Eddie Nketiah, Emile Smith Rowe, James Hillson and Reiss Nelson, could leave the Emirates Stadium at the end of the season.

Arsenal considering bringing back Szczesny from Juventus – report

Szczesny’s contract at Juventus expires in June 2025, but according to The Standard, his €6.5 million-a-year salary could be an obstacle for the Gunners, and it remains to be seen whether the Poland international will agree to replace David Raya in 2024-25.

Juventus are struggling to reach agreement on a new deal with Szczesny, so they are willing to listen to offers for the 34-year-old. The Bianconeri appear to have already found a long-term replacement for ‘Tek’ as they are reportedly in talks with Monza for Michele Di Gregorio.

Szczesny joined Juventus in a €17 million deal from the Gunners in 2017 after a one-year spell at Roma.

The Poland international made 250 appearances for Juventus, keeping 103 clean sheets.
