Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny is ready to take lessons from Liverpool legend Bruce Grobbelaar!

The Gunners’ opinionated Pole gave fans heart palpitations by ­performing two Cruyff turns on Marseille forward Jordan Ayew during Tuesday’s Champions League draw – the sort of trick for which Liverpool keeper Grobbelaar was infamous.

But Szczesny, 21, said: “Of course I looked good on the ball – that’s why they called me the young Zinedine when I was five years old! You could see from the Marseille game that I’d like to have been an outfield player.

“Grobbelaar? I have heard of him. He can be my new role model. I’ll YouTube him.”
