Arsenal's goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny is poised to make an imminent £8m move to Serie A giants Juventus.

According to the  Daily Mirror, the somewhat maligned keeper will depart the Emirates following the brokering of a £7.8m deal. It will allow him to continue his time spent in Italy's top division, after serving two seasons on-loan at Roma and only having one year remaining on his Arsenal contract.


The Polish shot-stopper appears not to be part of any of Arsene Wenger's future plans for the Gunners, and it is understood that Juventus rate Szczesny's abilities after seeing him in action for Roma. 

The Turin side also believe the 27-year-old to possess the quality to become a credible understudy to their legendary number one, Gianluigi Buffon, and it would be a fair assumption to say that Szcezesny would spend a lot of time learning from the Italian veteran at the Bianconeri whilst providing experienced cover in case of injury.

Arsenal now need to up their search for a decent back-up to their regular keeper Petr Cech, as not only is Szczesny set to be leaving north London, but Colombian Davvid Ospina is reportedly in line for a move to Turkish club Fenerbahce.

Whilst at AS Roma, Szczesny featured 81 times in goal, so although he has not appeared in Arsenal colours for two years, Juventus are certainly getting a quality, experienced goalkeeper.
