"I'm going to Arsenal" - 27-year-old confirms he will start pre-season with the Gunners


Poland international Wojciech Szczesny has confirmed that he will return to Arsenal after his summer holidays are over.

The 27-year-old enjoyed a very good season at Roma with recent reports claiming that Juventus and Napoli are eager to secure his services.

But he says he's only thinking about his holidays and will meet with the Gunners later on this month to understand where he will be playing his football next season.

"As soon as my loan spell at Roma is over I will be back at Arsenal," Szczesny is quoted as saying by Calcio d'Angolo.

"There is no doubts about that but I'm currently only thinking about my holidays in the United States.

"Rest is very important for a professional and that's exactly what I need after such a stressful campaign.

"Juventus? To be honest I don't read newspapers so I don't know what to say on these rumours.

"[If I'm ready to take over from Buffon?] I'm ready to prepare my luggage and go on holiday."
