Over the weekend, a big story came out of Italy, and that was that Arsenal’s Wojciech Szczesny had said yes to a stay in Italy, this time with Napoli, with a three-year deal agreed.

Talks with the Gunners weren’t done, meaning the transfer isn’t completed yet, and that allows other clubs to have their say.


On Tuesday, Il Mattino in Italy, while still confident a deal for Szczesny can be made for Napoli, report that two other clubs are also interested in the Poland international: AC Milan and West Ham.

Pushed to one side after making a few mistakes, Adrian’s future at the London Stadium isn’t as safe as it once was, and, despite performing admirably, a club like West Ham will want someone better than Darren Randolph between their sticks.

As for AC Milan, you would think the interest in the Polish shot stopper is only there in case a certain Gianluigi Donnarumma (helped along by Mino Raiola) decided to leave the club for bigger things.

With Arsène Wenger expected to stay at the Emirates for two extra years, it also remains to be seen whether the French manager wants to do with Szczesny long-term.

Does he still see him as the post-Cech goalkeeper? How long will he wait?

A transfer, at this moment in time, seems like the logical thing to do.
