International star will decide Arsenal future after major competition

Wojciech Szczesny has revealed that he will make a decision on his Arsenal future after representing Poland at next year’s European Championships.

The goalkeeper is currently away from the Emirates Stadium on loan at Roma after being deemed surplus to requirements by the arrival of Petr Cech in north London.

And despite being the Giallorossi’s main stopper, Szczesny recently heaped doubt on his long-term presence in the Italian capital by claiming that he has a desire to head back to Arsenal, prompting suggestions he could challenge the current Gunners’ No.1 in 2016.

However, the 25-year-old has now claimed that he is yet to make a decision regarding where he will be playing next season and will not make a final call until after EURO 2016:

“My future will be decided after the European Championship,” he told przegladsportowy.pl. “I love Arsenal, but I’m happy at Roma.

“I know that Roma want me, but I don’t see why Arsenal would not want me also. [Roma coach Rudi] Garcia believes in me and so too do my teammates and the fans. Coming to Rome was the best choice. It’s best being a protagonist for the runners-up in Italy than sitting on the bench in England.

“Even [Arsene] Wenger thought it was the best thing for me.”

Szczesny was Arsenal’s first choice goalie until a publicised incident involving smoking in the changing rooms after a match against Southampton mid-way through last season dropped him below David Ospina in Wenger’s pecking order.
