£75,000-a-week star now flying out as Arsenal transfer deal edges closer – Sky Sports
Arsene Wenger appears to have sanctioned another deal to offload one of the ‘homegrown’ players in the Arsenal squad.
The Gunners manager is currently preparing his side for an interesting meeting with Bayern Munich in their pre-season tour on Wednesday.
However, there have been reports of various transfer deals potentially happening and Wojciech Szczesny’s move is now on the cards.
The 27-year-old has been linked with a Juventus switch following an impressive 2016/17 campaign which saw him finish the season with more clean sheets than any other goalkeeper in Serie A.
Szczesny was excluded from the Arsenal squad which has travelled abroad and that decision now appears to be for the sake of his transfer to Juventus.
According to Sky Italy, the Poland international is now flying out to Turin to complete a €12 million transfer deal which Arsenal have agreed with the Serie A champions.
