Juve closing in on Szczesny
Juventus have moved a step closer to signing Wojciech Szczesny after reaching an agreement with Arsenal over a transfer fee.
The 27-year-old goalkeeper has been heavily linked with a move to the Serie A champions following an impressive loan spell at title rivals Roma.
Szczesny has been on the Gunners' books since 2009 but fell out of favour with the arrival of Petr Cech from Chelsea in 2015 and subsequently joined the Giallorossi on an initial season-long loan, which was later extended by another 12 months.
The Poland international's exploits for the Rome outfit caught the eye of Juve, who view him as a long-term replacement for veteran keeper Gianluigi Buffon.
The Bianconeri have finally struck a deal with the Premier League club reportedly worth around £10.5 million, and Szczesny is expected to finalise his transfer in time to jet off with Massimiliano Allegri's squad for their pre-season tour to the United States on Thursday.
