​Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny is set to join Italian champions Juventus this summer, according to a report from ​Sky Sports.

Sky are reporting that this year's Champions League finalists have agreed a deal in principle with the Gunners, and will part with £14m in order to get the player - who spend the 2016/17 season on loan at Serie A Roma - on their books.


Juventus are also said to have reached an agreement with the player ahead of a four-year deal worth £3.5m per season. 

Szczesny has spent the last two seasons at Roma, and has established himself as one of the league's top stoppers. His performances have also alerted Juve's rivals Napoli, who could see Pepe Reina leave this summer.

Reina's immediate future is believed to be in doubt after a falling out with club Aurelio De Laurentiis allegedly over a joke at the club's end of season dinner, leaving the club searching for alternative options in case he does leave.

Should Szczesny complete a move to Juventus, he will likely spend the first season of his contract playing second fiddle to club legend Gianluigi Buffon, who is set to retire after his deal expires at the end of next season.

The Poland international joined Arsenal from Legia Warsaw in 2006, making a total of 181 first-team appearances for the London side. And could potentially become the long-term replacement for the legendary Italian, who had his Champions league dreams crushed by Real Madrid on Saturday.
