Former Arsenal ace Wojciech Szczesny has been rumoured to make a return to his principal club, Arsenal F.C. The current AS Roma goalkeeper was loaned by the English giants this summer and Chelsea star Petr Cech took over the goal keeping position at the North London club. However, now news say that Szczesny could consider cancelling his loan and making his way back to the Emirates in January. The Serie A club is looking to replace Wojciech and it looks as if the former Gunner will have to come back to England. AS Roma is rumoured to be in talks with Paris Saint-Germain shot-stopper Salvatore Sirigu.

If Sirigu steps in at Roma, then Szczesny will eventually have to move out of the club and come back to his English club. That means Arsenal will have to make a decision about his future and what could possibly be done with it. This is because the North London club is currently doing exceptionally well with Petr Cech at the goalkeeping position. 

There is no chance that Szczesny would replace him as Cech remains the number one choice for the club, undoubtedly. However, it is believed that the number two goalkeeper at Emirates, David Ospina could move out of Arsenal. If that happens, it would make room for Szczesny to become the second choice goalie for the Gunners.

 While the Italian club are understood to have to pay a penalty fee in order to terminate the Pole’s loan agreement, it is a significantly lower figure than paying his wages for the rest of the season. This still leaves Arsenal in a situation where the club has to decide whether to keep Szczesny at the club or sell him off in the same transfer window.
