Wojciech Szczesny has admitted his time with Arsenal is up and would be happy to join AS Roma on a permanent basis.
The Poland international, 25, joined the Serie A outfit on a season-long loan deal in July following Petr Cech’s arrival at the Emirates Stadium and his chances of becoming number one again look bleak.
It remains to be seen as to whether Roma will seek to retain Szczesny, either on another loan deal or by signing him outright, or if Arsenal have any plans to bring him back to England at this stage.
The keeper admits he does not know what his immediate future holds but he suggested he would be happy to remain at the Stadio Olimpico beyond the end of his current deal.
“Everyone knows I’m really happy here,” the Giallorossi stopper told Sky Sport Italia. “I’d like to be able to tell you about my future, but I don’t know what it holds for me. I’ve expressed my intentions to the two clubs and now it’s up to them. I have to decide what’s best for my career.”
Szczesny would be third choice at Arsenal if he did return as David Ospina has proven to be a more than able deputy to Cech this season.
