Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny 'really happy' ahead of Roma move

Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny has announced on Instagram that he is on his way to Italy to become a Roma player.

Poland international Szczesny posted a video of himself in a car on Sunday, saying in Italian that he was on his way to the Eternal City.

"Good evening Giallorossi, I'm really happy because tomorrow [Monday] I'm going to Rome. See you there," he said.

Ciao Giallorossi!! ⚽️

The 25-year-old is expected to join the Serie A club on a season-long loan with a view to a permanent move and he will rival Morgan De Sanctis for the No. 1 spot.

His chances of playing for Arsenal this season had reduced following the arrival of Petr Cech from Chelsea, but Arsene Wenger said Szczesny could still have a future at the Emirates Stadium despite David Ospina remaining at the club.

"Szczesny is a top-class goalkeeper," the Arsenal boss said. "We have three goalkeepers who are top. For one of the keepers, if he can play somewhere that would be good.

"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."

Szczesny, capped 23 times by Poland, will look to get regular game time for Roma in Serie A and the Champions League. The Italian club appear to have lost faith in De Sanctis after a series of errors last season.
