Arsenal’s quest to keep hold of their star men continues as they look to recoup a major fee from the sale of one of their goalkeepers this summer.
The Gunner’s failure to secure Champions League football for next season has placed them in a position that top players are unwilling to join them. More frustrating is the fact that they may lose a few of their own players to clubs playing in the Champions League.
However, they are not willing to let any of their players go without a fight, and they have told Juventus that they would need to stump up as much as £20 million in their quest to sign the Polish goalkeeper, Wojciech Szczesny.
The Pole was on loan at AS Roma last season and helped the capital city club finish second in the Serie A table. But Roma could not agree on a fee with Arsenal for the permanent transfer of his signature, and he has returned to the Emirates.
Juventus see Szczesny as the perfect deputy to current first choice Gianluigi Buffon and believe he has the potential to replace the Italian when his playing career comes to an end.
