Roma seek loan deal for Arsenal keeper Szczesny

Italian club AS Roma are reportedly eyeing Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny.

According to the Daily Mail, the Giallorossi want the Poland international on a permanent deal but are baulking at the Gunners' asking price.

Szczesny is unlikely to be first choice at the Emirates Stadium following Arsenal's capture of Petr Cech from Chelsea and could be loaned out for the 2015/16 season.

Roma, currently in Melbourne for the International Champions Cup, already have Morgan De Sanctis and Bogdan Lobont on their books but are reportedly eyeing Szczesny after ending their interest in Manchester United-bound Sergio Romero and Mat Ryan who has signed with Valencia from Club Brugge.
