Szczesny spent last season on loan at Roma but, speaking after watching his country Poland go out on penalties to Portugal in the last eight of Euro 2016, the keeper says he doesn’t know where he will be playing next season.

“I’d love to know,” Szczesny told reporters in Marseille. “I really don’t know. For now I was focused on the Euros, I tried to recover from my injury. Unfortunately, it didn’t happen in time but now I have time to relax, for holidays and maybe think about my future.”

Earlier this month, Roma made an offer to extend his loan from Arsenal but no deal has yet been completed as Szczesny has been in France with Poland.

Last season, the 26-year-old joined Roma for the season after Petr Cech moved to the Emirates from Chelsea, but recent reports say he could yet get a new deal with Arsenal before being loaned back out, although much depends on what happens with Colombia goalkeeper David Ospina, who has been linked with a move to Besiktas.

Szczesny impressed in Serie A last season, playing 34 matches, but any return to Arsenal would see him operating as back-up to first-choice Cech and he is unlikely to settle for that role.
