Wojciech Szczesny has revealed that he wants to win silverware at AS Roma and that is what lured him to the club this summer.

The Arsenal goalkeeper has completed a season-long loan to the Serie A club after being officially revealed yesterday.

Move Happening

Szczesny posted on his official Instagram account on Sunday that he was flying over to Italy in order to complete a move to Roma, but it was only announced yesterday after medicals and paperwork needed to be finalised.

The Pole has spoken out about his loan move and he's revealed that the chance to win silverware in Italy is the main reason behind why he chose Roma.

The 25-year-old has just won back-to-back FA Cups with Arsenal and has the taste for success, but after a struggling campaign last year, he also wants to play regular football again.

Controversial Season

Szczesny made 17 Premier League appearances last season, with the majority of them coming before Christmas and New Year.

Arsene Wenger then dropped his number-one after a shocking display away at Southampton, which was then followed by the 'keeper being caught smoking in the showers.

David Ospina took over league duty for the remainder of the season, with Szczesny playing just FA Cup matches.

To make things worse for the 25-year-old, Arsenal announced the signing of Petr Cech over the summer from rivals Chelsea, meaning Wenger had to get rid of one of his 'keepers.

Despite Ospina being heavily linked with a move away, the Colombian chose to stay and Wenger then chose to loan out Szczesny.

After arriving in Italy, the Pole admitted that he's excited by the opportunity in Serie A and is hopeful he can help the team to some silverware.

Szczesny Excited

He said: "I've come here to win matches and trophies with Roma and I think the team are strong enough to do that. I think there's great potential here.

"I already know the faces and the names of my new team-mates and I'm hoping to get settled here quickly."

There is no option to buy at the end of the loan deal as requested by Wenger, who still believes Szczesny has a long-term future at the Emirates Stadium.
