Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny is set to sign for Juventus after arriving in Italy for a medical.

Juventus on Tuesday posted a picture on Twitter of Szczesny at Turin airport with the caption: "Has just arrived in [email protected]!"

The Poland worldwide spent the last two seasons on loan at Roma, making 81 appearances and made some convincing display under the bar which reportedly caught the eye of Juventus who are now ready to offer him a £70k-per week contract.

Arsenal now need to up their search for a decent back-up to their regular keeper Petr Cech, as not only is Szczesny set to be leaving north London, but Colombian Davvid Ospina is reportedly in line for a move to Turkish club Fenerbahce.

The institutional investor purchased 2,545 shares of the investment management company's stock , valued at approximately $585,000. The share price has moved forward from its 20 days moving average 2.39% and positively from its 50 days moving average 2.90%.

Szczesny lost his place in the Arsenal team after he was caught smoking in the showers after their loss to Southampton in January 2015.

Szczesny has only a year left on his Gunners contract, and an exit has emerged as the suitable option as it would benefit both the player as well as the club.

Szczesny played in every one of Roma's Serie A games last season and finished the campaign with 14 clean sheets.

Capped 28 times by Poland, he is expected to act as backup at Juventus for Italy's number one goalkeeper, Gianluigi Buffon.
