Wojciech Szczesny: Arsenal keeper to start the season as first choice

Arsenal boss Wenger is looking to bring in a new keeper to provide competition for Szczesny following Lukasz Fabianski’s move to Swansea City earlier this summer.

A reported deal in the region of £3million for Ospina is in the pipeline, with the Colombia international expected to join Arsenal from Nice.

However, Wenger is not planning to throw Ospina straight into his starting line-up and will keep faith with regular No.1 Szczesny at the start of the campaign.

Wenger told ESPN: “You know at the start Szczesny will be the No.1, then again we’ll be down to performances and, if Ospina shows that he is better, he will play."

Or maybe he was just sneezing....
