Spalletti's Interest In Arsenal Goalkeeper?

Spalletti's Interest In Arsenal Goalkeeper?

Do Inter Milan need another goalkeeper? With Samir Handanovic the number one at the San Siro at the moment it could be questioned but this isn't preventing Nerazzurri coach Luciano Spalletti being linked with Wojciech Szczesny.

Appointed earlier in the month, Spalletti of course worked with Szczesny during the Arsenal keepers two year loan with Serie A rivals Roma.

That previous could make links to a reunion at the San Siro easy to claim, which has been happening in the English media according to our friends at Vital Arsenal:

A lack of progress on Wojciech Szczesny's proposed transfer from Arsenal to Juventus could see his former Roma boss Luciano Spalletti hijack this deal and take him to Inter Milan instead, reports the Evening Standard.

Having refused to meet Arsenal's asking price, Juventus have reportedly offered only £4m for the Pole, Szczesny, 28, could see out the final year of his Gunners deal at the Emirates Stadium as Petr Cech's back up.

Szczesny's asking price varies as it has actually been claimed the club aren't holding out for £14m, not even £15m, as the Arsenal asking price has increased to as much as £20m - a fee the Gunners will NOT receive from any club.

Interest from Inter Milan could bump up the Szczesny fee if nothing else.

Spalletti, recently appointed at Inter, is looking to 'enter the race' for the goalkeeper he knows well having worked with at Roma during his long-term loan, taking him to the San Siro if Juventus can't conclude a deal.

Handanovic has regularly been mentioned in connection with a departure from the San Siro but unless the Slovenian international, under contract at Inter Milan until 2019, is planning to leave the Nerazzurri he doesn't need replacing.

Yes, a player always needs to be challenged for his position though. On the right deal and price, as Spalletti knows and trusts Poland's Szczesny, his own contract at Arsenal only has a year to run, perhaps this can happen and they could battle each other for the no.1 spot at the San Siro?
