#TransferGossip: Wojciech Szczesny Wants Roma Stay Claims Club President
Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny wants to extend his stay at Roma after completing two loan spells at the club, club president James Palotta has said.
Szczesny moved to Roma in 2015 and re-signed for another year after a successful first campaign and made 38 appearances last sason to help the Italian side seal a second-placed league finish.
“He told me that he wanted to stay with us,” Palotta told radio stationSiriusXM. “I’ll say more, I was surprised by the fact some of the players I thought had wanted to leave came up to me before and after the final game to say they wanted to remain.
“It’s a sign we’ve got a good group, we just lack some depth and Monchi (director of football) will help us with that.”
Media reports have linked Szczesny with a switch to Serie A champions Juventus with the final decision about the keeper’s future resting with Arsenal.
