On-loan Roma goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny says it is still is dream to remain at “home” with Arsenal for the rest of his career.
Szczesny made the temporary move to the Italian capital in the summer – signing a one-year loan deal – a move which he thought would never happen a year ago.
However, the summer arrival of Chelsea stopper Petr Cech meant the 25-year-old was shunted down the pecking order at The Emirates and when Roma made their approach Arsene Wenger was happy to sanction the deal.
“If you had told me a year ago that I would go to Rome, I would have said it was impossible.” Szczesny told Sky Sports Italia.
“I could see myself at Arsenal for the rest of my life and I can not deny that is still my dream.
“Arsenal is my home.
“I have a lot there and if given the chance I would decide to play for them.
“Here at Roma my team-mates, fans and staff are fantastic though, so I try to give my best and in nine months we’ll see.
“Things change from week to week, it’s hard to predict what will happen in nine months.”
