Chelsea board to sign €35m-rated world-class Polish player

The London giants are considering a summer swoop for Juventus shot-stopper Wojciech Szczesny, who could be sold in the upcoming transfer window. Poland international spent a large part of his footballing career at Chelsea’s arch-rivals Arsenal, whom he joined as a youngster in 2006, before going onto become a mainstay between the sticks for a number of years.
Having played 181 matches for Arsenal, Szczesny left the club for Roma in 2015 on a two-year loan deal on the completion of which he was signed by the Bianconeri in 2017.

 

Having played second-fiddle to Gianluigi Buffon in his year at the club, Wojciech became the first-choice in Juve after the club legend left for PSG in 2018 and has continued as the preferred option in goal even after the veteran returned to Turin only a year after his departure.

He has played 134 games for the Old Lady, keeping 53 clean sheets in the process. Despite largely being a reliable presence in goal, the Polish goalkeeper has made a few errors this campaign which has hurt Bianconeri.

While he is still regarded highly by the club, they could look to offload the 31-year-old goalkeeper this summer as they are considering a swoop for Milan shot-stopper Gianluigi Donnarumma, who is set to be available on a free transfer at the end of the campaign.

In order to make room for the Italian goalkeeper, Szczesny may be sacrificed if an offer of €20m or more would come around, as per the report. And the Blues are among the clubs that have taken an interest in the development and could launch a move to secure the services of the 31-year-old shot-stopper.
