AS Roma, the foremost football club in Rome, have declined to sign a long-term deal with Arsenal’s Wojciech Szczesny, who had joined the Giallorossi on loan last August. They refused to sign a new deal with the polish goalkeeper after completing a new deal for a long-term target ahead of next season.
Roma has agreed on a juicy deal to sign Internacional’s Brazilian keeper Alisson, preparing to officially announce the deal at the end of the season, sending the no-show message to Arsenal. Szczesny is expected to rejoin his mother club any time soon, as his loan contract expires at the end of the season.

Back at Arsenal, reports say, David Ospina – Arsenal’s number 2 goalkeeper – has complained bitterly about being a substitute and back-up to Petr Cech, and would likely be pushing for a move to more footballing opportunity soon.
With a situation like this back at the Emirates Stadium, it seems Szczesny’s chances of seeing a good deal of footballing opportunity are slim.
According to The Sun on Sunday, Everton is considering a move later in the summer for the Poland national team number 1 goalkeeper.
Reports say Everton’s number one goalkeeper, Tim Howard, is a very big target for the MLS; and so Roberto Martinez is currently preparing to get someone younger, and has seen his man in the 25-year old Szczesny.
In other news, reported Arsenal target Daniel Sturridge has said he would prefer a move to a London club, if he should ever leave Liverpool.

If that is the case, then that gives Arsenal’s plan to sign him a real lift, as that statement leaves only West Ham as the only competition for the striker’s signature.
Arsenal has a lot of attacking strikers, but this season, they have failed to put in the final touches to the ticky-tacker football game for which the North London club is well known. They need a reliable clinical finisher, and Daniel Sturridge could just be the man for the job, having netted 45 goals and 16 assists in 73 appearances for Liverpool.
Although his ability to stay fit over a long period of time, reliably netting goals, Sturridge is a man who knows his way around the goal area, and whose left footer has increasingly given many goalkeepers a reason to be on their toes.
