Wojciech Szczesny will return to parent club Arsenal at the end of the season after AS Roma confirmed they won't be making his loan deal permanent, reports the Independent.
The Italians have agreed a deal for Brazilian goalkeeper Alisson, which will signal the end of Szczesny's time at the Stadio Olimpico.
The 25-year-old's future in north London is already in serious doubt as it's improbable he'll dislodge Petr Cech as number one, so a summer move is very much on the cards.

It's not known at this stage if Szczesny will opt to stay in England or set up home elsewhere, but the Poland international has enough time to consider his options.
Arsene Wenger holds the 'keeper in high regard, though, suggesting his Gunners career might not be over just yet.
Upon Szczesny's departure last summer, he said: "I believe he will have a future at Arsenal. I personally rate him highly - you do not take a boy and put him in the first team at the age of 20 [if you don’t].
"He already has huge experience. I don’t want that experience at such a young age to be wasted."
Wenger's kind words will encourage Szczesny, but the 'keeper is at a crossroads in his career whereby he won't want to play second fiddle to Cech and watch his talents stagnate.
Whatever happens next for the former Gunners number one, he'll certainly need to work on his discipline - especially if he stays in the Premier League.
The former Brentford loanee felt the wrath of Wenger in 2015 when he was caught smoking in the showers at Southampton, resulting in a £20,000 fine.
