The Poland global recently returned after his two-year loan spell at AS Roma, but his stay at the Emirates could be limited after he was left out of the club's pre-season tour of Australia and China.

Szczesny arrived at the club from Legia Warsaw as a 16 year-old in 2006, moving through the youth academy and a loan spell at Brentford, ultimately becoming a consistent first-team player in 2010.

While he was first choice at the Olimpico, meanwhile, he joins Juve in full knowledge that he will be backup for Gianluigi Buffon for the foreseeable future. Reports in Frane suggest that out-of-favour right back Mathieu Debuchy is set to join Nice, while there is still a large deal of speculation surrounding the futures of Mesut Ozil, Alexis Sanchez, Jack Wilshere, Olivier Giroud, Kieran Gibbs, Lucas Perez and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

Nevertheless, the Italian veteran is expected to soon call time on his playing career given he turns 40 next January, and it appears as though Juventus have settled on Szczesny to be the man to step in and replace him between the posts in the long-term picture.

Fabriano Romano, who is a journalist for Sky Sports Italia and the Guardian, claims that the deal to take the goalkeeper to the Serie A champions is a "done deal".

Szczesny played in every one of Roma's Serie A games last season and finished the campaign with 14 clean sheets.
