Arsenal forgotten man Wojciech Szczesny is set to join Roma on a £15million deal in this month’s transfer window.

The Polish stopper, 26, has been on loan at the Serie A side since July 2015 after Petr Cech was brought to the Emirates by Arsene Wenger.

Since then, Szczesny has turned out 62 times as Roma‘s No1, including 53 in Serie A – and all 19 of their games this season.

After impressing out in Italy, the club are now willing to part with around £15m in order to land him permanently.

The move will mark the end of an era for Szczesny who spent three years as a youth player at the club before breaking into the senior fold in 2009.

Wojciech Szczesny has conceded just two goals in his last five games at Roma.
