SkySportsreported earlier today that the Italian giants Juventus have reached an agreement with Arsenal for Poland international stopper Wojciech Szczesny.
The deal has been agreed for a fee around £14million, the player will soon be heading to Turin for a medical and to finalize personal terms. The reports suggested that Juventus have offered him a four year contract.
Szczesny who joined the Gunners from Legia Warsaw in 2006 made 181 appearances before moving to Roma on loan in 2013.
The 27-year-old has already impressed in the Italian top flight with Roma, keeping 14 clean sheets in the recent season.
Szczesny will be replacing goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon who is expected to announce his retirement once his current contract expires, the contract has one year left which means the new stopper will not be getting the number 1 role in the upcoming season.
Buffon hopes of winning his first Champions League trophy last weekend were destroyed by Real Madrid as they scored four goals to win back to back European titles.
