Arsenal goalkeeper Wojchiech Szczesny is set to leave Gunners for good with a permanent contract offer from Napoli already agreed, according to the reports coming from Italy.
The 27-year-old Polish shot stopper has spent two seasons on loan to Serie A heavyweights AS Roma and is set to stay in Italy with Napoli close to securing his services, Italian media outlet Il Mattino reports.
Szczesny met Napoli officials earlier this month and has already given thumbs up to a three-year deal with the Partenopei, who will now have to negotiate the transfer with Arsenal officials.
Gunners are unlikely to create problems to the Polish international who left Arsenal two years ago after falling behind Petr Cech and David Ospina in the pecking order and after a huge fallout with the club management.
Napoli are looking for a solution in goal and a replacement for Pepe Reina who lost the backing of Napoli management. The Spanish goalkeeper is free to change clubs this summer and a return to England is on the cards with his former manager Rafa Benitez reportedly keen to bring him to Newcastle United.
Wojciech Szczesny refused to comment his future earlier this month, claiming he would love to get back to London. He also stated he was very happy in Italy, suggesting he could remain in the Serie A.
Poland No. 1 helkped Giallorossi to a second-place finish in the Italian league this year, keeping 14 clean sheets in 38 Serie A outings.
