Wojciech Szczesny has played down rumours of a possible move to Barcelona, with the Polish keeper insisting that any talk of an exit from Arsenal is laughable.

Rumours have circulated today that Szczesny is hoping to become captain in place of Robin Van Perie, and the stopper took to his twitter account to quash and talk about his future and position on the Gunners squad.


“I got annoyed with a few things about myself in the media recently so I'm gonna set the record straight,” he wrote.

“1) I never said I deserve an Arsenal armband. I said that I would love to one day take a responsibilty of being an Arsenal skipper.

“2) I AM injured and had to be pulled out of Polish national team. Hope to recover asap. (Thats for Polish media).

“3) Please continue the "Szczesny to Barcelona" rumours. Makes me laugh everytime I read it :) haha.”

Szczesny isn’t playing in the Polish side this weekend, but should be fit for Arsenal when they take on Sunderland next weekend.

Arsenal will be hoping to get their season back on track after a disappointing start, and a demoralising 2-1 loss to cross-London rivals Tottenham last Sunday.
