Juventus close to signing Arsenal's Wojciech Szczesny – sources
Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny is closing in on a move to Juventus, sources in Italy have told ESPN FC.
Talks are at an advanced stage between Juventus and Arsenal and the Italian champions hope to finalise his signature next week for a fee in the region of €9 million.
Szczesny has spent the last two seasons on loan at Roma and his performances in the Italian capital have alerted Juventus.
Poland international Szczesny is entering the final year of his contract at Arsenal and the Gunners want to sell him this summer rather than risk letting him run down his contract.
Juventus are in the market for goalkeeping reinforcements with Neto set to join Valencia and they see Szczesny as a possible long-term replacement for Gianluigi Buffon.
