Arsenal to hand Wojciech Szczesny new deal

Published 1 Comments

Arsenal have handed Wojciech Szczesny a new contract to make him one of the highest paid goalkeepers in the world.

According to The Sun, the Gunners and Szczesny have agreed on a four-year deal worth an astonishing £20.8million - doubling the Poland international's wages.

Arsene Wenger was reportedly on the lookout for a new number one this summer, but he eventually only brought in Italian Emiliano Viviano on a season-long loan to provide some first-team back up.

Talk of a new 'keeper was borne out of Szczesny's run of poor from through most of last season, which culminated in him being dropped for Lukasz Fabianski for the second leg of the Champions League last 16 clash with Bayern Munich.

However, he responded well and was one of the stars of Arsenal's impressive run in that saw them clinch fourth spot ahead of rivals Tottenham to gain Champions League qualification.

Szczesny has carried that good form into this season and it seems as though Wenger is keen for him to be rewarded fro his improvement, with the 23-year-old set to earn £100,000 a week on his new terms.
