Juventus have agreed a fee with Arsenal in the region of £10m for Wojciech Szczesny and the Polish stopper is set to complete his move in the next 48 hours, Goal understands.

With first team chances at Arsenal limited, Szczesny is ending his spell with the Gunners and moving to last season's Champions League runners-up.

The Polish worldwide has spent the past two seasons on loan at AS Roma, but the Guardian are reporting on Monday that a £10m deal to bring him to Juventus is close to being fully agreed.

However, his career at Arsenal came crashing down after his ill-advised cigarette break in the showers following the infamous New Year's Day defeat at Southampton in 2015.

Juventus have been pursuing the goalkeeper all summer and they appear to have finally got their man.

If Szczesny does join Juventus it is anticipated that the 27-year-old will initially provide back-up to Gianluigi Buffon before becoming first-choice when the legendary Italy global retires at the end of next season.

He impressed on loan at Roma last season as he kept 14 clean sheets in Serie A, more than any other goalkeeper in the division.
