Wojciech Szczesny is happy to have sealed a season-long loan move to AS Roma, but is hoping to return to north London once the deal expires.

The Polish goalkeeper was given the opportunity to leave the Emirates after Petr Cech arrived in a £10million deal from Chelsea.

Arsene Wenger told Szczesny that he should go somewhere that will allow him to play more game time as Cech was going to be his first-choice next season.

With David Ospina also at the club, Szczesny faced the prospect of being the third-choice and not even making the bench.

The 25-year-old has confirmed that he is delighted with the opportunity to play for the Serie A title contenders and hopes to return to the Gunners as a better goalkeeper.

Hoping to return

“If Arsenal get an offer from another Premier League club, we probably wouldn't consider this,” he told the Evening Standard.

“But this is AS Roma - one of the biggest clubs in the world. They play in the Champions League and will fight for the title in Serie A. Being a goalkeeper with no chance for playing and then getting an offer from such big club is like winning lottery.

“I had an honest talk with boss. He said, that another goalkeeper will start new season, so playing in other club would be the best option for me. I trust Mr Wenger like no one else, so If he says, that the best way to get my place in squad back would be go on loan, It means he's right. I'm lucky that the boss was honest with me.

“I want to come back to Arsenal and Wenger wants me back. I'm going to back as better, stronger and more experienced goalkeeper.”

Option to buy

However, his future at Arsenal remains unclear. Cech has signed a four-year deal with the Gunners and Ospina is only slightly older than Szczesny. Also, if The Mirror is to be believed, AS Roma have an option to make the deal permanent for just £5m.

That clause suggests Wenger had little faith left in the man caught smoking in the dressing room earlier this year. If he impresses at Roma, there is no reason why Rudi Garcia wouldn't sign him on a permanent basis.
