Wojciech Szczesny told he has a future at Arsenal

Wojciech Szczesny has been told that he still has a future at Arsenal and is likely to return to north London when his loan deal at AS Roma expires, reports the Mirror.

The season-long deal included an option to buy for the Serie A outfit, but it now appears most likely that they won't take it up. That threatened to leave the Polish shot-stopper in limbo; Petr Cech is the firm No.1 choice at Arsenal and David Ospina has played back-up.

But Arsene Wenger has told Szczesny that he wants him back at the club if Roma choose not to buy him. There won't be regular first-team football on offer, but it is understood that Ospina is set to leave at the end of the season.

While the Colombian has failed to impress when given the chance, he has still been left frustrated by his lack of playing time this season.

Indeed, it is believed that Wenger promised to play him in Champions League matches, only for that promise to be rescinded following a high-profile mistake against Olympiakos.

Learning curve

Ospina's exit would leave a place on Arsenal's bench available and Szczesny is in a position to take it. Of course, it is not the ideal situation for a man used to a No.1 shirt, but Szczesny recognises that being second to a world-class goalkeeper like Cech has its own advantages.

There is much to be learned from the former Chelsea goalkeeper and Szczesny will certainly have an opportunity to improve even if he is not playing regularly.

At 25-years-old, Szczesny still has plenty of time to fulfill his potential and there must still be hope amongst Arsenal coaches that he will eventually mature. However, his past indiscretions – the smoking, the terrible smoking – will certainly be hard to forget.
