Arsenal transfer news and rumours: Juventus ready to improve bid for Wojciech Szczesny

Arsenal keeper Wojciech Szczesny remains a top target for Juventus, who aren’t willing to give up in their chase for him to be Gianluigi Buffon’s replacement just yet.

The Serie A champions are reportedly ready to up their bid for the Polish shot-stopper from the initial £4.4m (€5m) that was rejected by the Gunners.

La Gazzetta dello Sport are saying Juve are willing to increase their offer to £7m €8m) for the keeper who has impressed on loan at Roma.

Szczesny’s contract runs out in June 2018 but despite the short timeframe and the fact Arsene Wenger doesn’t seem to want him, the Gunners want more than £13m.
