Wojciech Szczesny says he would be delighted to stay at Arsenal for his entire career.

As reported by the London Evening Standard, the Gunners number one said he never wants to leave the Emirates Stadium and believes he's in the best form of his life.

The Polish international also welcomed extra competition for places at Arsenal, following the club's links with Barcelona keeper Victor Valdes and Real Madrid's Iker Casillas.

Szczesny insists it would not bother him if Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger decided to bring in Casillas or Valdes, and he would stay at Arsenal to fight for his first team place.

So if it was on the table, Szczesny would have no hesitation in committing to the Gunners.

"If they give me a contract to the end of my career, I'd sign it without any hesitation," the 23-year-old said.

"I feel attached to the club and the coach who has given me a chance. There are not many who would do that but I must've been good. I see the future here.

"I'll play at Arsenal as long as am wanted here. I am not afraid to fight for number one with anyone: Fabianski or Casillas.

"I hope I won't make the boss think, 'Wojciech's not number one'. It's all in my hands. I am in the best form of my life."

Szczesny has made over 100 Premier League appearances for the Gunners, and is firmly established as the club's starter. A couple of shaky displays earlier this season briefly brought his place in the team into question, but Wenger has backed the Poland star.

Still, Arsenal continue to be linked with a summer move for a new keeper, with Real Madrid's out-of-favour stopper Iker Casillas thought to be under consideration.
